Location Sound

Record. Anywhere.

SonicWorks owns a location recording set wich is used to record Foley soundeffects and ambient sounds.

Every location has distinct and subtle sounds created by its environment. These sound sources can include wildlife, wind, music, rain, running water, thunder, rustling leaves, distant traffic, aircraft and machinery noise, the sound of distant human movement and speech, creaks from thermal contraction, air conditioning and plumbing noises, fan and motor noises.

In film making ambience (also known as atmosphere, atmos, or background) consists of the sounds of a given location or space. It is the opposite of “silence” and is distinguished by the existence of explicit background noise in ambience recordings.

Ambience is normally recorded by the sound department to provide a movie location with sonic space and normally occupies a separate track in the sound edit.

SonicWorks records  these ambient sounds to create ambiences to complement scenes and set design in modern theatre productions as well.
