The post Behind the spectacular sound of ‘Dunkirk’ – with Richard King: appeared first on A Sound Effect. Its an interesting interview giving deep insights into sound design and soundscape creation for film. It caught my attention first because of the mention of Richard King. But its not Richard King, Grammy award winning professor in sound recording at University of McGill. Its the other one, the Oscar award winning supervising sound editor at Warner Brothers Sound.
We collaborated with Prof. Richard King on a couple of papers. In , we conducted an experiment where eight songs were each mixed by eight different engineers. We analysed audio features from the multitracks and mixes. This allowed us to test various assumed rules of mixing practice. In the follow-up , the mixes were all rated by experienced test subjects. We used the ratings to investigate relationships between perceived mix quality and sonic features of the mixes.
