When we first posted about sound designer Roger Lima (a.k.a. White Noise), we idly wondered if he could spin the sounds from a "NY taxi, a motocross motorcycle and a commercial airliner" into coherent rhythms. His latest project isn't a full departure from what we saw before, but it's worth watching nonetheless.
Lima transforms the tool into an instrument, in a manner of speaking:Everyone knows about the Giant Swiss Army Knife's place in the Guiness Book of World Records, its wide array of 87 implements, and unrivaled 141 functions. But did you know that it also makes a great percussion section in the hands of a super-talented sound designer and composer?It's not exactly a secret that the promotional piece was commissioned by Wenger, whose name is featured prominently throughout the video... but frankly, I think that corporate cash for this kind of marketing isn't so much a limit to creativity as a reward for it.
Frankly, we're just amazed that the massive multitool doesn't have the likes of drumsticks and thumbpianos among the myriad functions... it's got all the bells and whistles, but no bells or whistles.
