Music, perhaps more than any other art form, has the ability to swiftly evoke emotions. Finding the right background music for your video can therefore be a challenge.

Action features and the cinematic experience have always gone hand in hand. The huge screen, the darkness, the surround sound - all combine to create an experience like no other in intensity and impact. This is perhaps the reason why action films have remained such an integral part of the cinema industry, where the environment and technology can be used to its full potential by bringing the experience to life.

One of the proudest achievements we have made as a species is our ability to capture and measure time. Since their earliest iterations the devices we use to do so have had certain distinctive sounds associated with them, from the eternal gentle rush of sand through an hourglass to the near-silent movement of the arms of a priceless wristwatch, and everything in between.
With a shimmering radiance these sounds emerge in a way that is both magical and natural. They appear as something otherworldly yet very familiar, like something pulled from a dream that has been lost to time yet left behind a feeling that cannot be forgotten.
From the unsettling to the threatening to the downright hideous, the sound effects found in horror have always been an opportunity for sound designers to stretch the limits of their imagination and creativity.
