So this is my first time asking a question. So here is the setup. I'm currently in pre-production of a film in which I am doing both production and post audio. It is a thesis film in which the director wants to maintain a certain tension similar to horror films. A key audio part is a low end hum that resonates in and throughout the characters apartment. Its not a horror film but more of a psychological thriller. So Ive been doing research and came across this page.
It relates infrasound to many "ghost hauntings"
Cool concept to use in a film, an inaudible note that produces physical anxiety.
Problem is that nothing I have nor any venue has the ability to reproduce tones that Low.
Then I stumbled upon another question here on SSD regarding low end production out of laptop speakers and using the Idea of Missing Fundamental to achieve that.
So now to my question. Any idea if using harmonics of infra sounds would produce the same effect? I am leaning towards no because the waves actually shift parts of the body, but there are some psychological effects that may occur, Any thoughts on it?
I do know that I don't need those tones to achieve discomfort but I'm in the process of creating a large palette of different sounds to work with later, and am finally given a chance to work with sound on a pure conceptual level before I even look at a frame of film on a project. And why not explore this avenue, the military has :)
Also I know that I have to be extra careful in the design to not overwork the sub, any ideas, tips, tricks?
Thanks a bunch
