Composer Shaun Chasin

Sound design is a powerful tool in storytelling, and when it comes to creating spine-chilling moments in film, games, or any other form of media, mastering the art of sound becomes crucial. One of the most intriguing and challenging aspects of sound design is creating scary sounds that evoke fear and anticipation in the audience.

In the pilot episode of our new editorial series, Sound Stories, we asked composer Shaun Chasin about the stories behind the creation of scary and spooky sounds that are used in films and trailers.

Watch the video below.
