This experience has been awesome because I get to experiment with sound- what works & what doesn't.
For the doorknobs piece I want to experiment with using background sounds. Because the tent community is located right on Ann Arbor/Saline Road and the highway entrance ramp, I recorded highway sounds today. However, the strong wind factor caused pretty poor results. I have these small windscreens that came with the recorder but they don't seem to help much. I will have to wait for better weather conditions. Or maybe there is a free website where I can download sounds of the highway- just to test it out.
I also recorded zippers and doorknobs. I'm afraid these sounds will distract the listener. So if I use them, they will have to be very well done.
