12 Years A Slave: Sound Design

March 18, 2014 Leave a comment

Hi there, how have you all been?

First of all I must state it makes me sad to belong mankind. Of course, the movie brings nothing new to the table, but facing the fact we can (still nowadays, mind you) be so absurdly grotesque to each other kills a part of me everytime I do it.

That said…

12 Years a Slave

Aside the story, the brutality itself and the strong acting what really makes the movie land its punches in my modest opinion is the sound design–even more than the music score, which would be a more usual emotional artifice in that regard.

Music in such a movie can become a cheap trick if misused; the strenght needed to pass the feelings on lies on being realistic, in… immersing the spectator in sorrow. Seeing blood spilling can be shocking for sure, but hearing whiplashes tearing flesh apart is just plain terrifying–more than anything else. And there’s plenty of loud-and-clear pain to be heard here.

Here’s a trailer but that doesn’t do the sound design any justice, really. I hope you watch the movie and, aside taking technical¬†notes, it serves the purpose of making you ponder on everyone’s deeds and how to make things better for generations to come.

See ya, yake care.


Another Oldie–A Mysterious One. :)

Hi there, how have you been?

Another lost piece of music found! This one was composed by influence of the book¬†“Les marins perdus” by the French writer Jean-Claude Izzo. Wonderful read, made me think of a “floating mystery” if I can describe this recording that way. :P

Les marins perdus

Have a nice week, take care! :D

Hi there, how have you all been?

This week I want to share a quick recording on a space-theme idea… I’ve been digging making acoustic takes drenched in late-FXs for some time now, this one isn’t different. :)

(Pick this image because I suddenly recalled I used to love those NASA logos when I was a kid… *-*)

NASA Voyager

That’s it for now, I hope you like it. See ya!

Hi there, how are you doing?

Remember that Street Fighter 25th Anniversary celebration I talked about a little while ago? Well, I’m proud to say I’m in! Capcom has selected my recording to be feature in their future releases!

So I’m here to share a new final recording/master for them… It’s a bit more intense, low and fat–just like Zangief, who owns the theme. lol

Hope you like it, see ya!

Nice Ryu, but I choose Zangief. -.-
