Watch This Video Detailing The Sounds & Music Of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’
  |  @   |  

If you were the one of many who watched The Dark Knight Rises in glorious IMAX, then you may have noticed the genius music and the booming sounds coming from explosions, The Bat hovering over Gotham City, and Bane’s terrifying voice. And all of that came together perfectly thanks in part to director Christopher Nolan, music composer Hans Zimmer, and sound editor/sound designer Richard King. Now Soundworks Collection has released a video of how it all came together and you can check it out below.

King reveals that Nolan was playing this one pretty close to the chest, and went as far as not revealing the last few pages of the script to those who were involved with the filmmaking process. Despite not knowing how the film was going to end, King praises Nolan for being very involved with the science of the sound for The Dark Knight Rises. The sound editor also talked about how the different sounds pieced together the different elements (The Bat, Bane, etc.) of the film.

King talks about the difficulties he had to overcome for Tom Hardy’s Bane voice. Through a lot of testing, they came to the conclusion that the facial gestures and exaggeration were the key to the clarity of Bane’s voice.

Zimmer comments on how the bar was raised since The Dark Knight was released and the idea behind the “deshi deshi basara” chant that could be heard throughout the film.

The video provides some great insight on how sound and music is created. Some of the different ideas to create these different sounds are just mind boggling and others may be very simple. So if you are a fan of Zimmer or the science of the sounds for movies in general, then you might want to take a look at the short video.
