Chernobyl Sound Design
Centred around the 1986 nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl power plant in Soviet Ukraine, this award-winning drama series recreates a number of sound details.
The sound designers used an array of bespoke recordings, manipulated audio effects, recordings of everyday sounds and re-recorded dialogue to design an immersive, multi-layered soundscape.
They worked with a sound team across Europe to record authentic analogue sounds, including Ukrainian fire-engine sirens and Russian tape-machines.
Designed by Joe Beal, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Stefan Henrix and Stuart Hilliker (Sound), SISTER, The Mighty Mint and Word Games (Production), HBO and Sky Atlantic (Networks).
