The Symphony Of Coffee Preparation in Digital Cinematic Sound

7 Jul

Lovers of coffee will know that it’s not just the beverage that matters, but also its preparation. There is a beauty in the brewing process – from the grind to the pour. One aspect of coffee preparation that often gets overlooked is the sound (and I’m not talking about the whistle of a steam wand). Diego Stocco is a sound designer and foley artist who has worked on both Sherlock Holmes films as well as games in the Assassin’s Creed series. Er, so what’s a “foley artist”? Well, they are the people responsible for the reproduction of everyday sound effects which are added in post production to enhance the quality of audio for films and TV shows. So, paying attention to sound comes naturally to Stocco. Using custom built water-proof microphones and some Hollywood-grade sound gear, Stocco recorded the sounds of his morning cup of coffee – and the results are satisfyingly cinematic and dramatic! You can see more of Stocco’s sound wizardry here.
