The frequence of crickets

May 16, 2010

Several crickets lining up, the crossing lines are the s-sounds we try to keep.

Here we want to share one of the obstacles faced by our sound engineer in the post production of our documentary series.

Namely, the sound of crickets. Many crickets. And sometimes, very many crickets. And, as in this example from the kalahari desert, abnormally many crickets….

But the arcitecture of the sound by these creatures are fascinating. Here you can see how we zoomed into the sound waves with one of the many tools used by Pål Terje Nygård in his sound studio.

We could single out each and every cricket around Helge Hjelland along his journey. Every line in the photo represent a single cricket. And this is only a tiny portion of the amount of crickets we had to deal with.

The black lines is the empty space left after we cut out one of the most annoying frequences. Unfortunately, it turned out this also cut away the s-sound of the dialogue. Leaving u wi a voie wiout and ound. (Meaning, leaving us with a voice without the s and th-sound.)

Therefor we had to zoom even further into the frequency, and instead of deleting it altogether, we had to whipe away just a portion of it.

This left us with a less annoying sound, without too many compromises in the quality of speech.

The frequency specter in this photo is from the Kalahari desert.
