Hello Sound Designers!
I'm currently working on a sound design for a live theatre show. One of the challenges I have is to create a cue that imitates the experience of covering you ears and listening to.... yourself. My more uninspired thought is to just EQ some pre-recorded material, but I'd like to try to capture something more organic.
My plan is to experiment cupping a small diaphragm condenser mic with my hands or perhaps sealing the mic to the skin. I'm not sure if this will produce the entire effect or any at all, but hopefully provide some sense of human innards. I've also been looking into a stethoscope and makeshift mic attachment. I'd love to hear some more thoughts if you have them.
