Deepwater Horizon’s immersive mix via Twenty Four Seven Sound

The Peter Berg-directed filmDeepwater Horizon, in theaters now, opens on a black screen with recorded testimony from real-life Deepwater Horizon crew member Mike Williams recounting his experience of the disastrous oil spill that began April 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico. This documentary-style realism moves into a wide, underwater immersive soundscape. The transition sets the music and sound design tone for the entire film,” explains Eric Hoehn, re-recording mixer at Twenty Four Seven Sound. “We intentionally developed the immersive mixes to drop the viewer into this world physically, mentally and sonically.”
