July 8, 2001 SANDPOINT IDAHO – If you can, imagine the movies, television, or even video games without sound. Not just the sound of dialog or the musical score, but also every squeak, bump and sound effect that brings a production to life.Thanks to Sound Designer Frank Bry, we don’t have to live in silence.
Bry uses portable digital recording equipment to capture sounds from every imaginable source – including a stealth bomber taking off, the trickle of a mountain stream or the ring of an antique phone – and adds them to his vast library of more than 30,000 recordings.
