2019-06-10 (M) Electronic Wind Chimes EWC COMPLETE

The whole Electronic Wind Chimes device was propped at an angle on a box sitting on a white paper sheet. The DSLR camera, with 1080p and 60Hz recording, captured video with the help of a ring-light and mic mixer. Sound from the EWC in the footage was captured live so adjustments, like the tempo, are plain. Audio capture was difficult because a microphone picked up unwanted noise around the room, but the digital MIDI added some unwanted electrical noise on the analog audio line. Noise issues were solved by adding a wireless bridge since the mixer and EWC did not share a common wire anymore.

Video editing has been a bane in my life, which is why my YouTube channel is sparsely populated with utilitarian videos instead of flashy well-produced skits and demos. This time, I was able to mix the audio in Audacity and combine it with the video using VLC, both were free software I already had installed.

This video marks the completion of the Electronic Wind Chimes. It has been a four-month project with lots of ups and downs, but mostly ups. What I learned from this project was worth the time, and the conversations spawned by this project are worth more than that. I encourage people to learn more about things that interest them through any means necessary. In this case, I learned about music by programming and building hardware.

Another revision and similar hardware are not out of the question for the future, but I (perpetually) have a list of projects begging for attention.
