The Sparrow

We created a bespoke collection of instruments now dubbed as the “Animal Chorus”. Every sound you hear was originally a migratory animal vocalisation which we put through a sampler and processed in a number of different ways.
  • Eurasian Tree Sparrow
  • NZ Tui

  • Humpack Whale

  • Megellanic Penguin

  • Common Rooster

  • African Zebra

  • Waterfowl

  • Bats

  • Tree Frogs

Making of..

Regardless of whether you make music as an artist or as a composer for media, most of us are trying to tell stories with our sounds.

How can we continue to advance ourselves on this journey? Tom Smith AKA Menik composer / sound designer and owner of Soundsmiths recently sat down with us to share how he used samples creatively to tell stories in the score for The Sparrow, a film that sheds light on one of the many struggles immigrants face on a day-to-day basis in modern Britain.

In the tutorial video above, he begins by walking us through the essentials for setting up a scoring workflow in Logic Pro X. From there, he dives into how he transformed the sounds of various animals into textures and instruments using tools like Alchemy, iZotope’s Trash, and more.
