Dunkirk and the “Shepard Tone“

Nice piece by Vox – in a true Nerdwriter1 style by the way – on the sound design of Dunkirk – and by extension all of Christoper Nolan’s films – which makes the movie so intense.

Just like with visual illusions, the brain can also be tricked with sound illusions.

Sidenote: Ever since I saw its trailer in full IMAX glory I’ve been really excited about this one. This Saturday I’ll be watching an IMAX screening of it in Brussels 🙂
