Or, As I Like to Call It, Radio

Thu, 10/18/2018 - 11:00 -- Nick Dager

In a reverse twist on the silent movies of old, The Companions: A Lost Screenplay is a film without moving images. Or, as described in accompanying notes from the de Young Museum in San Francisco, the sound installation becomes “a type of auditory cinema that explores the vital role sound plays in shaping narrative and affective space in film.” The 20-minute work, presented in the de Young’s iconic observation floor (one of the free spaces within the museum), couples sweeping 360-degree views of the city to a soundtrack of music and sound effects as reproduced through a 24-channel system of Meyer Sound loudspeakers.

Sounds Like Superfly

Wed, 07/11/2018 - 11:37 -- Nick Dager

Superfly is Columbia Pictures’ reimagining of Gordon Parks Jr.’s classic 1972 crime drama that defined its genre through its characters, look, sound and feel. Helmed by Director X and written by Alex Tse, the new movie transports the story of Priest (Trevor Jackson), from Harlem to modern-day Atlanta and reenergizes its vibe for a new generation. The movie’s sound team from Sony Pictures Post Production Services, led by supervising sound editor Steven Ticknor, supervising sound editor and re-recording mixer Kevin O’Connell, re-recording mixer Greg Orloff and sound designer Tony Lamberti, was tasked with bringing the sonic elements of Priest’s world to life. That included everything from building intricate soundscapes for Atlanta’s neighborhoods and glitzy nightclubs to supplying the thunderous fireworks for gun battles and car chases.
