You guys remember not too long ago when movies like Transformers and The Dark Knight took their sound design and score off the deep end of the bass spectrum with the warbles and the throbbing? That hasn’t changed much, as Godzilla sometimes reminded us, and it’s about to get a lot more thumpy with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, because EDM superstar Skrillex is coming to the party. Well, I guess now is when we can officially start referring to it as a party.
There admittedly isn’t really a whole lot to delve into as far as his involvement is concerned, but it’s known that he’s working on the film’s sound design, and that he is “creating the craziest Skrillex sounds I could ever make.” If you’ve ever listened to Skrillex’s music, you know that he’s already capable of making some pretty unique sounds. (You might even call it “noise,” depending on how high you wear your pants.) So to consider him doing something that could safely be called the Skrillexiestest thing in existence is kind of intimidating to those not wanting their eardrums numbed. But then again, one would expect nothing less from Michael Bay. I’m kind of surprised that he hasn’t just invented a real Transformer by this point.
