By in Audio Post, Pro Mixing

This weekend Avid will be taking over the historic Cary Grant Theatre at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA at MIX presents Sound for Film, an all-day exhibition and conference focusing on the techniques and technology behind Film and TV sound.

One of the highlights will be Avid’s morning panel on The Sound of Stranger Things, which will offer an in-depth look at the creation of the soundtrack for the acclaimed Netflix original series, currently one of the hottest shows on TV.

Stranger Things, which is part sci/fi, part horror and part family drama, is an homage to ’80s movies like Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T., and features unique sound design and a spooky, 80’s-style synth-based score. The panel, hosted by Avid’s own Ozzie Sutherland, a Pro Audio Solutions Specialist, will include six key members of the show’s sound team:


  • Craig Henighan, Sound Designer – Among Henighan’s many credits are films like Deadpool, Fantastic Four, Chasing Mavericks, and Black Swan
  • Adam Jenkins, Re-Recording Mixer – A winner of four primetime Emmy awards, Jenkins is also known for his work in films like Eye in the Sky, Planes, Daredevil, and the upcoming Marvel TV series Luke Cage
  • Joe Barnett, Re-Recording Mixer – Barnett has worked on TV series and movies such as Daredevil, Bloodline, Luke Cage, and Hands of Stone
  • Brad North, Supervising Sound Editor – North’s work can be found on such shows as Bosch and House, as well as movies like 300 and All the Kings Men
  • David Klotz, Music Editor – Klotz’s many TV credits include Game of Thrones, American Horror Story, and Glee.
  • Jordan Wilby, Sound FX Editor – Wilby has worked extensively in TV on on shows such as The Following, Daredevil, True Blood, and Luke Cage.

The panelists will discuss the creative process involved in realizing the Duffer Brothers’ vision when creating the show’s eerie soundtrack, as well as how this team utilized Avid Pro Tools and Avid S6 consoles in the editing and mixing process. Pro Tools sessions from the series will also be played back to demonstrate specific examples of the sound design, music editing and mixing on the show. Q&A will be encouraged throughout the panel.

All attendees will also have a chance to win a Pro Tools | Dock (valued at $1199) when they stop by the panel or schedule a hands-on Operational Overview of our Pro Tools | S6 or Pro Tools | S3 consoles.

Mix Sound for Film will take place on Saturday, September 17, at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA.
