Tim Harrison, Raoul Brand and Peter Strickland
In Flux: The analogue and the digital in sonic storytelling

18 January 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM GMT (London)

Zoom Event Zoom Event


Sound designer Tim Harrison, re-recording mixer Raoul Brand and director Peter Strickland will discuss their work on Flux Gourmet and beyond, with a focus on the interplay between analogue and digital approaches.

Tim will introduce the topic by expanding on ideas from his book Sound Design for Film around holding the tension of opposites in the design process. How do we preserve the creative affordances of “real-world” practices in an industry so increasingly reliant on the computer? And how do we most effectively bring together analytical approaches with intuitive practice and improvisation?

The filmmakers will then revisit the sound process of Flux Gourmet, telling the stories behind key scenes – from melting hydrophones in miso soup, to the hunt for the perfect stomach rumble, whilst trying to maintain a sense of play through to the end of the final mix.

Topics covered will include:

  • Different senses of analogue and digital, and how to frame them within the design process.
  • Precision and fluidity in sound design, exploring the influences of left/right brain on storytellers and audiences.
  • How practical sound approaches can serve as narrative rhymes, including reflections on Censor.
  • The emergent process of Flux Gourmet, and the spectre of generative AI.

2 hours including a 30-minute Q&A.
Each ticket includes free access to a recording of the event for 6 months.

Peter Strickland

Tim Harrison is a sound designer, composer and filmmaker.

He began his career in 2004, co-founding narrative audio company Aumeta. In 2009 he designed his first feature film, Sus, with the next years seeing him work alongside Ai Weiwei on Sunflower Seeds (2010) and with Damon Albarn on The Boy in the Oak (2012). Recent years have seen him work on Black Mirror (2018), Censor (2021) and  Flux Gourmet (2022), which won Best Sound at the British Independent Film Awards.

Outside of sound, he has produced a number of award-winning music videos for Studio Murmur, including 2013’s viral hit La La La by Naughty Boy. He has also exhibited as a director at international film festivals with Helioscope (2013) and I Woke Up Before I Went To Sleep (2016). His book ‘Sound Design for Film’ was published in 2021 by The Crowood Press.

Raoul Brand is an award-winning sound designer and re-recording mixer working across documentaries, indie features and TV.

Born and raised in Düsseldorf, Germany, his journey into film sound started as a musician, playing guitar in local bands. He moved to London to attend the School of Audio Engineering (SAE) and went on to produce music for television and advertising. His credits include scoring documentaries for BBC, Channel 4 and worldwide ad campaigns for Audi, Nike and BMW.

In a parallel career as a musician he worked with internationally renowned artists such as Carl Douglas of “Kung Fu Fighting” fame and performed his own music at the Royal Albert Hall, the Jazz Cafe and on tour with Mica Paris.

Building on his experience in scoring adverts and documentaries, he studied Sound Design at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) where he graduated in 2013. 

Since then, he has worked on many highly acclaimed feature documentaries – such as the multi award winning films Poly Styrene: I am A Cliché, Almost Heaven and Irene’s Ghost. He was re-recording mixer on the breakout romantic comedy Rye Lane and Peter Strickland’s latest film Flux Gourmet which was awarded with a BIFA for best sound in 2022. As a TV sound editor, he most recently worked on BBC dramas Sherwood, Happy Valley and the ITVX show Nolly

Peter Strickland (born in Britain’s Thames Valley in 1973) started making short films on Super 8 and 16mm in the early ’90s. After directing his own adaptation of Kafka’s ‘Metamorphosis’ for Reading’s Progress Theatre in 1992 he went on to direct a short film in New York called ‘Bubblegum’, which played at festivals in 1996. After a long hiatus making culinary soundscapes with The Sonic Catering Band, he returned to film in the early part of this century. His first feature film, Katalin Varga was funded from an inheritance and shot and edited on a budget of £25,000. The Carpathian tragedy led to funding from the British film industry and the Milano-Dorking sonic anguish of Berberian Sound Studio followed in 2012 along with the bondage romance, The Duke of Burgundy in 2014. Several radio plays and more short films were made in recent years along with a concert film for Björk co-directed with Nick Fenton. His fourth feature, the Thames Valley retail nightmare, In Fabric was released in 2019 and his latest feature, the gastrointestinal drama Flux Gourmet appeared in early 2022.
