Overview

Recorded by renowned innovators of film sound design, Ann Kroeber and Alan Splet, the Beautiful Bugs library features an expressive collection of natural and designed insect sound effects. Created while working on major feature films including David Lynch’s Blue Velvet and Peter Weir’s The Mosquito Coast, these masterful sounds were captured on excursions in the jungle of Belize, the Alaskan wilderness, muggy summertime North Carolina, and an insect lab in Berkeley, California.

The impressive spectrum of emotion conjured by these artful insect recordings ranges from ominous, frightening, irritating, and disgusting all the way to lonely, tranquil, and soothing. Inject mystery and surrealism in your scenes with rhythmic cicada swells, dense locust drones, mosquito cries, and isolated fly buzzes. Add unique character and texture to your creature design with impressionistic buzzy swarms, chirpy choruses, and heavy rhythmic pulsing.

This exclusive sound effects library was curated from Sound Mountain: Kroeber and Splet’s venerable private recording collection created over decades of film sound work.
