Adding the score

With movement and silence, music can add another layer of depth and emotion to a scene, a setting, or a moment.


Music from Silly Old Bear

See With Your Ears

Every setting has a unique set of sounds. The weather, the walls, the distance from large construction equipment and that persistent bird over there all add to the sense of reality and place in a scene.

Creating a new world out of layers of sound and motion has to be one of the most fun and rewarding parts of sci-fi sound design, at least to me! This was originally made for a scene in This Planet Needs a Name.
