Sound of Oblivion

I love hearing about sound effects in films and the work of foley artists, soundtrack composers, and sound designers. Back in 1997, I interviewed David Cronenberg for the bOING bOING print 'zine, and we mostly talked about the squishy oozy sounds he likes to use in his movies. Here's an excellent SoundWorks Collection interview with Oblivion director Joe Kosinski and the sound of his new movie. Some of his collaborates included composer Joseph Trapanese, Anthony Gonzalez (M83), re-recording mixer Gary Rizzo, and re-recording mixer Juan Peralta.


  1. I liked the ED209 style noises made by the Drones in Oblivion. It is the sounds that they make that make them so threatening. 

    1. It isn’t really, it’s in the trailer, then again they seemed to have putt half the movie in the trailer. The story is the weakest part of the film anway, go for the visuals and the soundtrack but try not to think too much about the silly things happening and all the scenes they copy/pasted out of other recent sci fi movies.

  2.  Wow. Saw it last night, and loved it! I can’t wait for more people to see it so spoilery discussion can commence!
