Twitter Radio Trail Production Jack Beale-Burchell
Choice of music• We chose a much more laid back style of music for the radio trail, due to the research that we had accumulated, the majority of documentary radio trails had a very laidback style of music in the background.• We used a variety of time stretched drum beats and an upright bass for a decent base of music as it gave the radio trail a pulse, similar to that of the BBC’s “newsbeat”.• On top of bass and drums we had added, we added a series of vibraphone riffs and more mellow and relaxed instruments to give the track itself an overall relaxed feel.• After use of automation and panning to give the track fade ins and outs and more depth, we added some time stretching and looping to certain parts to give the entire track a more modern feel to it, the style then resembled some of the elements used in modern hip-hop production.• The reason for the way the track is mastered an produced, is to give it a mellow and relaxed “vintage” feel, but also with after production to give it a modern hip-hop feel in order for the trailers music to grab the attention and appeal to the age bracket of people we were aiming the documentary at.• To summarise the track in its entirety, it has interesting yet mellow sound to grab the attention of the listener in the target audience of the documentary.
Use of Garage Band• We used Garage Band to piece together the radio trail, using a selection of pre-installed loops to create the track.• The initial creation of the radio trail was very simple, as was the editing, we had recorded the individual vocal tracks in using a microphone, then cut and edited it in Garage Band.
