The other day, on a nice bike ride we discovered a unique tunnel lined with corrugated iron. While we rode through the tunnel it created a hallowed echo sound. We knew we had to come back with our recorder.
After an afternoon rainfall, we went back to the tunnel equipped with our Zoom H6 and running shoes! We thought it would be fun to recreate a typical running scene from a horror movie. Luckily, the ground of tunnel had wonderful puddles to run through.
Location in Germany where we recorded the sound!
We tried different variations of running on concrete with different tempo footsteps, with one person, and then with both of us. Even though it was difficult to avoid the traffic noise from above, it does add an interesting vibe to the recording.
You have a lot of option but one of my favorite sounds is the sound that I recreated, so it sounds like 10 people running around the tunnel! You can listen to this track on Soundcloud and can download from here as well!
“For me, the sound design and the musical score is a big part of what makes scary movies work”.
