A Sound Effect Contest

The website asoundeffect.com posted a little contest to design the sound for this short video. The challenge: you must create the sound using only synthesizers, processed however you like.

I got down and dirty with some good old experimentation while concocting my submission. One highlight of the process was learning how to create spark sound effects with a synthesizer. I also ran some of my synth sounds through a bass amp with small screws on the speaker cone, the buzzing of the screws as they vibrated with the speaker cone created a wicked analog buzz, which I recorded and used in the design.

Check it out below and let me know what you liked about it, or what could be improved. Cheers!
