I have decided to release some of my audio/video work under the moniker Kenny Boy Mims. This is the first. After being inspirited by the supremely talented Pogo I wanted to try my hand at what he does. There are many Pogo-tributes out there but I wanted to do something better.. or at least try.
I chose Princess Mononoke as it is one of my favorite animes, but I quickly discovered why Pogo chooses so many music movies as his source material. Princess Mononoke has no singing and very little isolated sounds, as there seems to be a river, crowd or other background noise in ever scene. Regardless, I samples and fixed all the sounds in Adobe Audition, then composed it in Ableton Live 9. It was my first experience with Ableton and I also wanted to learn that software, which I feel rather comfortable with now. I couldn’t get any clean bass tones from the movie so I enlisted my friend Mike from Glass the Sky to lay down a nice bassline.
The video was composed in Adobe Premiere Pro and turned out really well I think. Please enjoy in 1080p!
