Evocative Objects : The Macrowave [Process]

Initial Ideas

Potential Themes: Global Warming

Uses of natural elements as objects with potential global warming sounds.

Fire and water – coal and water sizzling

Water and air – bubbling sound

Earth and Water – blurping, squishy, sticks and mud (melting of ice caps)

Earth and Fire – burning sound (deforestation/burning fossil fuels)

Earth and Air – wind blowing trees, leaf sound (CO2 gas)

End with fire extinguisher-extinguishing global warming


Synthetic nature environment

Environment A : diff grades of air quality diff sound, object constant

Same conditions, diff air quality, diff outcomes/reactions



Natural earth sound (EARTH SINGING-microphone into the soil), ‘tortured’ by the other elements. In the end all three sounds happening together, rate increasing as elements are added.

Shows global warming happening to earth as things are happening. Shows the increasing rate of global warming as the sounds are added in, eventually earth gets overwhelmed with all the activities, ends off with fire extinguisher.

FINAL concepts: 


MICROWAVE + Food + Utensils  


  1. Unhealthy eating- Processed food goes into the microwave
  2. Electricity- physics- sound from water vibration in the food (cos that’s how microwave works) /consumption
  3. Experiential sounds
  4. Popcorns


Sounds – Warning/ Alarm


Please choose the food of your choice(Robotic sound)




  1. Second best one – Less upbeat, more dramatic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBQn3up61Qo
  2. Alarm Sound Effect – at 0.28 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIMqdnQrdm0
  3. Nuclear Alarm – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTlwbCVvbFY
  4. Ball bouncing – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbW6LPIgy0o
  5. UPBEAT (Best one) – New (Nuclear Evacuation Alarm) Sound Effect https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9uvwhuWRpY
