Foley and Sound Effects

Recording sound effects at MOSI

Excellent day out at the Museum of Science and Industry recording sound effects for an upcoming project.

Needed a bunch of hissing and clanking of heavy machinery so asked the staff to direct us to “stuff that makes a lot of noise”. We were sent to “The Power Room”, which contains some of the most fantastically absurd-looking machines I’ve ever seen in my life.

This particular colossus, via a complex system of enormous gears and pulleys culminated in a small steel peg hammering up and down. Not quite sure what it does. My colleague speculated that it might be history’s most committed hole-punch.

 

Essential tools for Foley artists

If you’re going to be close mic-ing the sound of eggs being thrown from several feet away into a pan of boiling water, you’re going to need some cling film.
