Sound-Only Storytelling with Gary Rydstrom

Seven-time Academy Award winner Gary Rydstrom has created some of the most memorable sound designs in modern cinema (Jurassic Park, Toy Story, and Saving Private Ryan, to name a few). He has also brought his audio storytelling outside traditional film, designing the sound for theme park Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland and an installation at San Francisco’s deYoung Museum called The Companions, an audio-only cinematic experience that guided visitors through immersive and directional sound.

Listen as Gary takes us through the creative process behind The Companions, and the power of using audio in storytelling.
