Doing Foley is an art itself. I love Foley! I am doing Foley since I am thinking. I use Foley to express myself. With Music, performances, software or constructions like Foley stages, properties or utilities (Pits for footsteps or things which creaks and squeaks), I try to give the item Foley and "Foley Doing" a higher value and good design. I think its more than worth!
All articles are designed and build by myself with passion from the view of a Foley Artist and mirrors exactly the needs of it´s working place - a Foley stage.
Foley are a very important part of my life. Foley or noises surrounds me every minute or second in my life. So, they are a essential part of mine and your life and even determine our consciousness or acting. It´s hardly surprising that noises can affect our healthiness. As a Foley Artist and experimental performer and musician, I want to give an opportunity to play with Foley or just enjoy sound with Foley to everybody. Especially with my gesture Software "Foleydesigner". Further background thoughts are to create or figure out how to handle with or create Foley. Always well designed. Therefore my creativeness don't let me rest and every day I work on my idea of a well designed "World of Foley". If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
"Foleydesigner" is an application to design and control Foley (Foley artist sounds) with
hand gestures. Additional to this you can drop soundfiles into the player. Up to 16 sounds, arranged in 4 slots, can be dropped into the app. The app. is controlled by LeapMotion interface. A very free and intuitive way to controle and play sounds in a 3D way. The LeapMotion interface is needed to run Foleydesigner. We want you to have a nearly realistic haptic feeling doing Foleys or any other sound.
The Foleydesigner is not a simple
sample player. In a close cooperation with a Foley artist, we create a new algorithm to control and replay sounds that comes very close to the art of a Foley artist.
The Foleydesigner is specially designed for the necessities of sounddesigners, filmeditors and musicians, who place value on
manufactured sounds or interested in experimenting with. In future cinematic typical sounds (like footsteps
or time lapsing FX), textures and drone layers, experimental sounds or natural sounds will be available as various sound banks.
First "Foleydesigner" comes with one sound bank ("Metal_Demo"). Which can be find in the applications area window named "Metal". Follow instructions given in "Read me" file. Foleydesigner let you also import single sound files. Easily drag sounds to the squares of the MATRIX window (Button beside the "4 Track Mixer" - Up to 16 sounds).
System requirements: MAC, OS 10.13.6 or higher. Not proved on OS 10.15. (Catalina). A LeapMotion Interface is needed.

Sound examples on soundcloud:
I am Foley artist over 25 years. After my studies of arts (painting) I went through the music highschool of Vienna to pass studies of soundengeneering. I worked as Foley artist and musician nearly 11 years in Vienna. Than I moved to Munich and founded the TONbar. A sound recording studio to synchronize Foleys to every kind of visuals. Beside this, I always composed music and so you can find many tracks of mine out there (Industrial music archives, Bandcamp, soundcloud, YouTube, several musical projects, even games music or scores to movies).
"Tatort", "Polizeiruf", "Universum Documentaries", many serials, movies, shortfalls, radio plays, even life performances.... over the years the list is grown long (-> https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0475108/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1). Over the years I decided to pass my experience and knowledge to younger people and open it up to the world (If somebody finds my shop). Archives, properties, musics even a software founds the way to the daylight. Everything I do has to do with Foleys.
Foleys are my life :)
