‘Nope’ sound designer reveals sci-fi film soundscape secrets

Award-winning British sound designer and re-recording mixer Johnnie Burn has an appetite for dark, compelling material when he’s searching for projects to lend his sonic talents to, and so his work on director Jordan Peele’s new thriller, “Nope,” was the perfect vehicle for building a multifaceted, immersive soundscape for audiences.

Burn’s artistry had already been heard in 2014’s “Under the Skin,” the disturbing sci-fi film starring Scarlett Johansson as a homicidal alien, and 2017’s “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” with Colin Ferrell portraying a father who’s forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.
