On Friday, October 29, at the Savannah Film Festival, sound-savvy SCAD students and intrigued festivalgoers packed the SCAD Museum of Art theater as Aadahl discussed his work with host Michael Coleman (SoundWorks Collection). SCAD, the first and only university to confer B.F.A., M.A. and M.F.A. degrees in sound design, provided the ideal venue for Aadahl’s insights. “Think of sound like painting,� explained Aadahl. “If you use too many colors on your canvas and smear them together, it turns brown.
A lot of times the trick is simplicity and imagining beforehand what you might be going for.� Having worked with directors as diverse as Michael Bay (the “Transformers� series), Terrence Malick (“Tree of Life�), and Gareth Edwards (“Godzilla�), Aadahl pinpointed commonalities in his process: “It begins with the script. It helps inform the rest of the process.� Aadahl enhanced his “Creating the Sound for Hollywood Movies� presentation with audio and film clips, emphasizing the interplay between sound and image. Running a serrated plastic knife down the tracks of a rubber tire, he revealed, led to one of his team’s most terrifying monster movie motifs. “One thing we really enjoy doing is trying new things. A lot of experimentation went into creating the sounds for the characters from ‘Godzilla.’ We pulled in hundreds of props and played with them. One technique was using high-resolution microphones five times the range of human hearing. So there’s all this invisible sonic information in those recordings, but once it’s slowed down it becomes audible.� Aadahl often records small things to massive effect, whereby “micro becomes macro.� “In ‘Transformers’ we’ve got these enormous footsteps. Slow it down and beef it up and it becomes huge.� A ripple of delight ran through the theater when Aadahl screened the “Kung Fu Panda� sequence where pupil and teacher grapple over the last steamed dumpling. The amazing visual effects in this film are complemented by the talented efforts of the sound team including Re-recording Mixer Greg Russell, Re-recording Mixer Jeff Haboush, Re-recording Mixer Scott Millan and Supervising Sound Editor and Sound Designer Erik Aadahl and Sound Designer John Marquis. Transformers: Age of Extinction begins after an epic battle left a great city torn, but with the world saved.
