Thread: What does playing in soil sound like?

  1. #1

    Default What does playing in soil sound like?

    I am trying to create the sound for:

    - digging bare hand in garden soil
    - squeezing the garden soil in your hand

    but I am having a difficult time doing so. When I am doing these two actions, it does not produce a sound. As a result, I need to find another sound that mimics what these two actions would sound like. Any ideas?

    I suspect it does make a sound; but at very low volume; and therefore harder to record. At one exteme, doing it with stone chippings or gravel will certainly be louder. But the sound would need to be adjusted to remove the high pitched clinking of the rocks. How anout a mixture of stones and soil?

    I actually managed to create the sound clip by rubbing my nails and my socks along carpet

    I tried and tried and tried to close my eyes and isolate the mud sounds to see if I could think how to replicate them.

    Sorry, I couldn't be of any help.

    Whilst watching, I managed to recreate some similar sounding slurping and slapping sounds ...

    Great video for extracting the mud sound effect.

    I ended up creating my own effect by a rubbing sock and my fingers through my carpet. It doesn't sound perfect, but close enough as we have music in the background to hide the imperfection.
