The Sound of Gravity


The movie Gravity [Link to review] begins with the lines which clearly inform the audience that sound does not travel in space. And given that almost the whole 93 mins of the running time of the movie takes place in space, it was quite a challenge for Director Alfonso Cuaron to decide upon the sound effects that he wanted in the final cut of the movie.

He had a very precise idea of what he wanted his movie to sound like. He had music written especially for a surround system, to go with the way character’s voices would pan out depending on their position. He also wanted the sound to be realistic and, at the same time, as confusing as the imagery.
