So, a couple of weeks ago, I accidently stumbled upon “Tron”. The original movie from 1982. Believe it or not, but I had never heard of it before (only it’s younger sequel from 2010). Right from the beginning I could see that this movie had to be a classic. The amazingly charming visuals where so cool in a very dated way, but at the same time it really had a certain beauty to it that I had never seen before. The sound design elements were very impressive.
Fast forward: Tron Legacy.
While the movie itself might not be remembered as an instant classic, the sound design is VERY impressive. The mix of all digital/synthesized layers with real world sounds is very creatively done, and…. well.. i’m just a sucker for star wars-kind of sound design.
Here is how they did it!
