HISSandaROAR FX023 STAB SLICE

This library is based on an idea I came up with while working on the film THE WARRIOR’S WAY (IMDB + Trailer) which involved a lot of Samurai sword fighting action. We recorded swords chopping & slicing vegetables but there were so many decapitations in the film I wanted more variety… and more grit! Especially when needing to ‘cut through’ loud action music!

What I found was that slicing a sword through sand produced an interesting sound, which could be varied depending on the sword or object used and the texture and density of the sand. For this library I expanded the concept.

After recording a range of weapons on location in a sand dune, I then collected up buckets full of sand, fine base metal, gravel and tiny stones and recorded them in my foley room. Slowly grinding a sword into gravel sounds excruciating, especially imagining it augmented with some Vegetable Violence squelch and/or Slime Moves. I also recorded versions after wetting the sand and gravel… And those stabs and slices sound even more gruesome!!
