We’re happy to announce that we have been hard at work on sound design for République! It’s been a pleasure and an honor to work with Ryan Payton and the insanely talented folks at Camouflaj! For the past month, we’ve been busy designing in-game environments, Foley, and sound effects as well as providing complete audio post for cinematics and a trailer for the Kickstarter funded iOS title. We’re proud to be a part a part of such an ambitious project and are excited to be responsible for bringing a more immersive sonic experience to mobile platforms! République is a game that we’ve been anticipating playing for a long time. Being a part of the project has been a blast!
Ui One is the latest sound collection from The Library by Empty Sea. This collection contains over 1400 original sound effects specially tailored for creating user interfaces, telemetry gadgetry and more. Empty Sea’s Mark Camperell carefully crafted these sounds using a variety of sonic tools, a sample of which include synths, samplers, guitars and more. Each sound was recorded at 48k/24bit. Then he processed, mangled and otherwise manipulated every single tone until it was something new, original and exciting. As usual, we then meticulously edited, mastered and embedded the files with metadata. This collection is priced to move, so don’t hesitate. If your project needs UI sounds heard nowhere else, Ui One from The Library by Empty Sea is the place to start.
The 60th Annual Motion Picture Sound Editors’ Golden Reel Awards will be held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday February 17th. Empty Sea Audio is nominated in the category of Computer Episodic Entertainment for our work on DR0NE. We are so proud of our team and will be keeping our fingers crossed for them!
Jason Krane was also nominated for his work on True Blood, a collaboration with Technicolor. And who would want to be left out of the party? Collin Ayers was also nominated with the folks at Treyarch for his work on Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Empty Sea’s latest endeavor is the much anticipated DR0NE web series on YOMYOMF Network. We are proud to have provided a full sound editorial, design and mixing package for the project. DR0NE is set in near-future 2023, in a world where humanoid drones have begun to replace human soldiers on the front lines of war. The series stars Lance Reddick (Fringe, Lost, The Wire) and Kenneth Choi (Captain America). DR0NE was written and directed by Robert Glickert and produced by Clark Baker. DR0NE premieres Thursday August 30th on the YOMYOMF Network on YouTube, a new online channel curated by Fast and Furious‘ Justin Lin.
The wait is over! We are proud to announce the debut release from The Library by Empty Sea is now available! SEA MONSTERS contains over 4000 sound effects, weighing in at a whopping 9GB! This collection is a must-have for any sound designer looking to level up on creature sound design. Start with four original creatures direct from the voice of our own Mark Camperell. Each sound was recorded at 192k/24bit for maximum design potential. Then, we meticulously edited, mastered and embedded the files with metadata. Next, we have provided a second version of each creature, stretched to 50% (96k) for even more variation and creative potential. The HD sample rates will allow for plenty of manipulative capability through the preservation of high frequencies in processing/stretching. Eight original creature voices in all, Sea Monsters can not be missed!
