Bank Holiday Making

Posted on May 2, 2016

I made the most of this Bank Holiday weekend by making up some contact mics. I’ve used mini-jacks so I can use them with my Mikrophonie module, and soldered the shielded cable directly onto the wires that come attached to the Piezo discs. I’ve dipped them in Plasti-Dip, a weird gloopy coating, that should mean they are now waterproof (hydrophones?). I had to dip each one about 4 times to get a decent amount of coating, hopefully that hasn’t deadend the sound too much. Expect videos of me freezing them in ice and recording them de-frosting (the sound designers equivalent of watching paint dry?)
