Provide detailed descriptions from chosen examples that establish… Clearly state what production technique(s) you think have
been used to create specific soundtrack elements
Setting The setting is at a stadium as you can hear crowds of fans; a man was commentating
over it setting a tense mood. There is mainly a male character in the cut scene but
crowd noises and fans are played through the cut scene. The character sounds like
he is currently talking about what the game is about, and then we hear people
screaming and shouting in joy and chanting making the scene tense.
I think that the production techniques used for
this cut scene is possibly a sound booth, pitch
adjustment and a clear microphone to create the
sounds off the male character speak and with the
sounds of crowds at 0:23 and 0:35
Mood At the beginning there is the sound of music making the mood quite tense then a
male voice talking over it to set the mood, through the character talking in the
background there is adrenaline music making the mood quite tense. The mood stays
tense throughout the cut scene with the same crowd sounds throughout the cut
scene also with fans chanting.
I think audio editing software has been used to
adjust to the pitch and volume, at 0:45 there is
the sound of drums banging and at 0:39 the
sound off screaming.
Game genre Simulator, The game genre sounds like it’s a simulator game because you can hear
the character talk about football and hear crowds of fans and balls being kicked.
The voice over is clear and sound s like a quality
microphone was used for the voices off the
character and crowds as they come across crisp
Narrative The narrative off this scene is a man commentating over how football makes you
feel and how it’s not just a game. How the music conveys the aftermath
(Background Music) the music details the feeling in the place is surreal and an
The techniques off the music I think are that they
use a sound programme to use the pitch
adjustment on the crowd music in the background
so it’s quiet and able to hear the characters speak
as well as the all the crowds and fans chanting.
