Shooting and editing this – especially constructing the audio from scratch, while the tireless Ben did the visuals – went from fun, to tedious, to painful. It was worth it though. If you click on ‘youtube’ in the bottom corner of the embedded player, you can see the list of the ‘instruments’ in terms of their real lab uses!
This video was constructed from scratch, using real sounds and footage from the lab. Some adjustment of the raw sound was necessary, and string sounds had to be recreated using stringed instruments. As with any complex project, pulling together the disparate pieces was a real challenge!
