Hello all,

I'm trying to design a lamb sacrifice cue and was wondering if anyone knows of any preexisting recordings

Thanks, Jeremy Bloom

HI there

I mixed a documentary for Discovery about 10 years ago where a zulu tribe sacrificed a goat / lamb for spiritual cleansing in the mountains around Kwazulu Natal South Africa .The noises of the animal shouting , almost crying was overpowering to any cutting / stabbing noises. I think i still have those cries. i will check tomorrow when at work .

Hi Jeremy

Rob Nokes made some great recordings. You can find them on my site. There are some nice foleys with blood and flesh.,%20Goat

Also check the 'horror' category:

Of course it depends if you need it for documentary or more like a horror movie. But also maybe you can find some pig-screams, pitch it up a little and it sounds quite awful.

Best Guido
