You can hear ambiences of a suburb along coastal South Africa, an interior car that captures every button and dial, barefoot and sandalled footsteps, and surreal ambiences that will pierce your audience’s subconscious. You’ll also hear engines and turbines from futuristic podracers and lots of expressions for your female animations. Happy listening!
