Jason E Anderson, SOUND Demo Reel


This page showcases some of the work I've done over the past few years with sound for media and performance. Please contact me with any questions you may have: ja@adadu.com

Audio for UI/UX

Ringtone Submerged

Ringtone Droplets

UI Bonus

UI Hirise

UI Quentalin

UI Quotent

UI Soft Knock

These miniature sound designs were created in 2014 to demo some UI/UX sounds for smartphones (specifically mastered for the iPhone 4). Each track was sequenced with MIDI using Native Instruments FM8, Ableton Live, and Pro Tools.

Electronic music:
Chinatown 2099

This track was composed with a combination of sequenced and live-played analog synthesizers including a Micromoog and Roland Juno 106. It was recorded direct to cassette 4 track and released on cassette in 2009 for my solo music project Spare Death Icon.

Ambient electronic music:
Foreign Relaxation Technique

This track was composed on Ensoniq ESQ-1, Ensoniq EPS, and a Micromoog. It was recorded live to 2 track tape and released on cassette in 2011 for my solo music project Spare Death Icon.

Music/Sound design for dance:
LIMITS Consistency, 2nd iteration

This video document of a live performance demonstrates my music and sound design created for a collaborative project with dancer/choreographer Corrie Befort. The music is created using voice, audio processing and hardware synthesizers (analog modulular, Roland MKS-70, Wavestation AD) which are controlled by probability tables within Max/MSP, generating both MIDI and voltage control. Voice, audio processing and mixing are performed in Ableton Live. HD video recorded on a DSLR, with sound captured in performance to a stereo recorder, and video editing done in Premier.

Music/Sound design for dance:
LIMITS Hallway

This video document of a live performance demonstrates my music and sound design created for a collaborative project with dancer/choreographer Corrie Befort. The music is created using voice, audio processing, a Boss DR-110 drum machien and hardware synthesizers (analog modulular, Roland MKS-70, Ensoniq EPS) which are controlled by probability tables within Max/MSP, generating both MIDI and voltage control. Voice, audio processing and mixing are performed in Ableton Live. HD video recorded on a DSLR, with sound captured in performance to a stereo recorder, and video editing done in Premier.

Sound/Video for installation:
Variable Time Percepts and the Approaching Vanishing Point

This video was created for an installation I made for class I took part in at Evergreen. The concept behind the installation was to illustrate the various methods humans use to manipulate their sense of time, and to encourage the recognition of one's own temporal experience amidst the influences of objective time and non-linear time. The soundtrack also utilizes audio illusions including Shepard tones and Diana Deutsch's 'phantom words' and the 'tritone paradox' to parallel concept. Sounds were recorded using voice, Max/MSP, a modular synthesizer and a Micromoog. Video was shot on mini DV, with graphics added in using Adobe After Effects.

Sound design for video:
Wall-E deleted scene

This project was a school assignment for a sound design class I took part in at Evergreen. Working with two other collaborators, we recreated all the sound for a deleted scene from the film Wall-E. For the sound design, we combined studio recordings with field recordings, and I added a few modular synth sounds to enhance some of these sounds. I also sequenced the music with MIDI in Pro Tools to control an Ensoniq ESQ-1 hardware synthesizer.
