Dark Tonic Week 9 (16-23)

Week: 9
Hours: 6

Much slower week as the head audio dev was out for the week. Worked on recording and creating sfx for a cut scene in the beginning of the game. Still needs more work before being ready for implementation. Had a weekly dev meeting to check up on overall progress so far and assign new tasks.

Monday, March 16, 2020

Dark Tonic Week 8 (9-16)

Week: 8
Hours worked: 10

Finally finished the SFX for interaction with the key this week. The devs are satisfied with the SFX and are looking to implement it soon into the current build. Polished up older unused SFX with eq and level adjustment so they can later be implemented into the build. Recorded and finished a rough SFX for a punch whiff sound but its implementation is being pushed off to a later date to prioritize other sounds.

Week 7 at Progressive Studios


Week 7 - 28 hours total
Tuesday, March 3 - 8 hours
I cleaned for 3 hours before a client came in. Wiped windows, vacuumed and dusted everything.
Miss Senior America came in to make a CD for her to sing along with.
We had to EQ a couple of tunes and normalize them. We also had to rip a couple of songs from her laptop and then edit them, since they weren't on the CD she had originally given Joe. After a while, Fred Pellegrini came in to start setting up for a band called Fast Eddie. He was trying to get two ULN8 units to speak to each other.
Friday, March 6 - 4 hours
Checked patch bays for quality of signal. Laid down a lot of cable so Saturday's set up would be easy. Got 'fired' for not over-undering right. haha
Saturday, March 7 - 6 hours
Helped finish setting up.  Tracked full band on all 6 tunes.
Sunday, March 8 - 9 hours
Came in early to brew coffee and clean stuff up for the band. Chilled for a little bit while Fred tried to figure out (first) why Studio One wasn't opening properly and (second) had to repatch everything because the patchbay wasn't working. I got to track some guitar and bass overdubs. Fred and Keith (another producer who Fred brought in, mostly for his large selection of excellent mics) seemed to be happy with my engineering. The band also seemed to be very happy with my help (and paid me cash for it!). Overall an excellent weekend. Fred and I are going to go back in on Tuesday (tomorrow) to clean up any mess and do a little preliminary mixing.

Week 7 at Dark Tonic (2-9)

Week: 7
Hours: 12

Went through and chose/polished a number of unused SFX related to the skeleton enemies in the demo. Still working on recording sfx for interaction regarding the key, closer to the final product now but still isn't quite right. Began working on a number of combat oriented sfx for the playable character such as punching and kicking.

Thursday, March 5, 2020

Week 6 at Progressive

Week 6 at Progressive Studios: Millenium week!
Friday 28 - 7.5 hours
I helped set up the table and display. I talked to the surrounding tables and met some new people. I didn't get to go to any panels because I was running the table. I had to keep running back and forth from the water fountain to fill up our coffee maker. Everybody seemed to like the coffee. It was a good way to bring people over.
Saturday 29 - 6.5 hours
Same thing as friday except I tore down instead of set up.

Monday, March 2, 2020

Dark Tonic Week 6 (23-1)

Week: 6

Weeks 4 and 5 at Progressive Studios!

I forgot to report on week 4 so I'm putting these two weeks together. I hope that's okay :)

Week 4:
Monday, Feb 10 - 1.5 hours
I listened to a session of overdubs for the kid's program. One kid played bass parts on a keyboard and the other played guitar.

Friday, Feb 14 - 3 hours
I processed several chapters of Joe's audiobook (Focus on Your Light) and let him know about some chapters that still need editing.

Week 5:
Friday, Feb 21- 4 hours
Continued "mopping" (removing clicks/pops from) Joe's audiobook. Then, Joe and I did several errands including picking up coffee from St. Thomas Roasters, dropping things off at the post office, going to banks, and walking his Mother-In-Law's dog, Callie.

Monday, February 24, 2020

Dark Tonic Week 5 (16-23)

Week: 5
Hours Worked: 9

Less busy week, finished up previously made sfx for the skeleton boss to be implemented into the game, started production on new ui sfx along with working on sfx for a common monster spawn in.

Saturday, February 22, 2020

Dark Tonic Week 4 (10th-16th)

Week: 4

Hours Worked: 12

Spent a large amount of time trying to work on a sfx for an enemy spawn. Recorded extra sfx for the in game key but are still unsure if we want to go ahead and use them. Did a test run of the game demo looking out for any possible bugs within it.

Monday, February 10, 2020

Week 3 at Progressive Studios

Monday, Feb 3 - 1 hour
Listened to the last session of full band tracking for Immersive, the kids band program.

Friday, Feb 7 - 4 hours
Stood on guard with a broom while Joe used a dog to try to catch a squirrel. He caught it several days later. Made adjustments to the processing for Joe's audiobook. Cleaned up the first chapter, got rid of yucky mouth sounds. Processed the second chapter. Talked about my upcoming schedule.
Joe wants me to look into getting his tracks on to Spotify playlists. I'm not sure where to start, probably Google.

Dark Tonic Week 3

Week: 3
Hours Worked: 11 Hours

Talked about learning C# and C++ along with going over scripts of the languages in Unity. Polished our recordings for key and footstep SFX discussed some foley techniques to use for recording some more footstep sfx in the future. Worked on further troubleshooting with problematic sound clips that we recorded in the past and prepared those for implementation within the games engine.

Monday, February 3, 2020

Week 2 at Progressive

Monday, Jan 27 - 1.5 hours
Listened to another kid's band tracking generic songs (Smells Like Teen Spirit). Engineered once again by Jay Kirssin.

Friday, Jan 31 - 4.5 hours
Recorded both sides of a 45 (record) from a turntable into the interface with Joe T. Used Sound Forge 8 to clean and enhance sound. Used a bit of de-click and de-noise and beefed up the bottom end. I took notes on what edits were made and made sure (mostly) the same edits were made to the second side.
I cleaned up the entrance to the studio.
Discussed how we would edit Joe's audiobook and went through a chapter to see how much work I would have for each chapter.

Sunday, February 2, 2020

Dark Tonic Studio Week 2:

Week 2

9 Hours

Planned ahead for upcoming audio work needed for the game. Went back and adjusted the processing and length on some previous ambient sfx we had recorded. Got started on recording some upcoming item and footstep sfx for future usage in the game.

Monday, January 27, 2020

Week 1 at Progressive Enterprise Sound Studios

Week 1 at Progressive Enterprise Sound Studios

Monday - 2.5 hours
Sat in the control room while a young band (10-12 year-olds) tracked generic rock tunes (Foo Fighters, Skillet). They have a program called Immerse (or Immersion, something like that) where they bring in a bunch of younger children and teach them how the studio works and go through the process of recording. I mostly just watched as Jay (the engineer) tried to remain calm and not lose the last of his patience. He uses an old Roland mixer with it's proprietary DAW.

Friday - 2.5 hours
Organized receipts and invoices into envelopes and a binder, respectively, by month. Took pictures of Jay's set up so it could be re-done after a Sunday session.

Sunday - 10 hours
Worked with Ryan Frantz, an LVC alum and fellow bass player. Tracked drums for a Christian rock song by Brett Trout. Watched Kevin (the drummer) and Ryan set up mics for drums and helped plug them in. We did one take to get levels, lay down scratch vocals and guitar, and then make any necessary adjustments. We ended up turning room mic down (to match the overheads) and pulled the main kick mic out about an inch (to get more low end and less clickiness). It only took one more take after that.
Then we tracked a marching snare style part, which probably took longer than the kit because it had to be precise.
Next, Kevin tracked drums over an older tune of Brett's that they had recorded at Progressive about a year ago. I went to pick up food for the homies at that time. When I got back they were finishing up.
We tore down the drum mics and got ready to track acoustic guitar. Ryan comped a guitar track and we called it a day. Wrapped some cables and vacuumed the studio.

Sunday, January 26, 2020

Atlantic Final Week

Atlantic Week 10, Wednesday 10-6, 8 hours total 

  I had an open but interesting last day at the internship- all the big projects I had to work have come to a close, and I had an opportunity to go mostly as I pleased this week. With that free time, I was able to meet with people from some other departments, including publishing and A&R. The guy from A&R was able to give me some really valuable information about working with the label and how they seek out people to join the creative teams like songwriting/producing, and even had me send him my pages. Who knows if it will lead anywhere, but it was awesome to get that chance.

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Atlantic Week 9

Week 9, Wednesday/ Thursday 10-7, 18 hours total

  I ended up staying later this week in lieu of the marketing presentations, getting everything all together and also working towards squaring away everything I needed to do as the internship is coming to a close. The presentation went okay, unfortunately our group didn’t win, which would’ve been cool because the reward was free concert tickets, but ah well. Now that the main part of the internship has pretty much ended, I’ve got some time to reflect on what I’ve learned and maybe talk with some people I haven’t had a chance to/ in fact, my supervisor put in me in contact with someone  in publishing, so I’ll be meeting with her next week, definitely excited for that.

Atlantic Week 7/8

Atlantic Internship, week 7, Wednesday/Thursday 10-6 (16 hours)

It was business as usual this week, a couple of meetings for the marketing campaign, and I was also sent out for a little trip to duplicate a blue ray disk, something I’ve never done before. I didn’t really have any idea why I needed to do so, but it was in my childhood neighborhood so that was nice to visit again, in Hell’s kitchen. Otherwise, nothing terribly exciting happened, just took care of status reports and worked on the marketing campaign. 


Week 8, Wednesday/Thursday 10-6 (16 hours)

This week was a bit of a lull, as the marketing campaign my group has been working on came to a finish. We all finished our parts and sent the hard copy off to Atlantic in Los Angeles, and will be doing our presentations this week. With the summer coming to a close, I’m hoping to talk with a few other departments to see about actually working with the label. But next week my group and I will present our campaign for rapper Roddy Ricch, and the members of the winning group get tickets for an Atlantic artist of their choice.

Friday, July 26th: 10am-6pm (8hrs)

This internship was cut short due to a family emergency and little to no work for the upcoming two weeks. Since Coriolanus is frozen, the notes crew doesn’t have any notes to work on. Corrine also felt confident letting me go early because I will be back working at the Public Theater starting January 5th, 2020 for their winter theater festival.

Atlantic Week 6

Atlantic Internship Week 6: Wednesday/ Thursday, 10-6:30, 17 hours total

This week actually got pretty interesting- I started getting deep into the marketing campaign my group of interns is drafting for Roddy Ricch. I mostly did some cool merch design samples, as well as  promo for a brand desk idea we’re working on. After that, I actually got a chance to work on an interview/ social media content for an Atlantic Artist named “Kamau” which was pretty dope. Definitely looking forward to more chances like that.
