'Gravity' Sound Effects On Display In Fascinating New Behind-The-Scenes Video Featuring Alfonso Cuar贸n

Fascinating New Video Details 'Gravity' Sound Effects

"Gravity" has received praise for its majestic visual effects, but the film's sound mixing is just as impeccable. Alfonso Cuar贸n's movie, which collected a record-breaking $55.6 million during its opening weekend, boasts an approach to sound editing that marries high-voltage noise with moments of unexpected serenity. All of that is on display in a new video from the SoundWorks Collection, which offers behind-the-scenes looks at movies' audio production. Cuar贸n and re-recording mixer Skip Lievsay discuss their methods of creating "Gravity's" sound, from the use of microphones in Sandra Bullock's and George Clooney's space suits to how the dialogue was inserted amid such adrenaline-inducing action.

"What inspires me is the cinematic experience," Cuar贸n says in the video. "The cinematic experience that is a language in itself, and it's a language that you use tools. And sound is one of these tools. When you have the possibility of having sound coming out of extra single place, it replicates the experience of being alive."
