I'm currently sound designing for a presentation movie of a new interface system and i'm trying to figure out this shot : somebody jumps on a hi-tech, blue illuminated ground . A shockwave starts from his feet and distorts the ground all around. This is supposed to sound light and hi-tech, not harsh or heavy like a earthquake. Some low rumble wouldn't harm though, I guess.
I've thought about a synth with an organic high-resonance filter that swipes from low to high frequencies, with some kind of light phaser. If you have ever ridden the "Rock'n'Roller Coaster" thrill ride in Disney Land Paris and remember the launch sequence sound design, you should have a pretty good idea of what i have in mind.
Not sure it's gonna work, though, so what kind of sound would you design for this, and how ?
