Kylo Ren's Signature Sound Was A Purring Kitty

You can always count on Amy Ratcliffe to pull together an eminently readable piece and she does just that once again with this article looking at the sound design of The Force Awakens and some surprising elements that went in to the sound of Kylo Ren.

After the opening crawl of A New Hope stretched across screens on 1977, the ensuing film broke ground in several categories of filmmaking. Star Wars was a revolution on multiple fronts, including sound design. The tradition of creating a vast and rich soundscape continued with The Force Awakens; the film is nominated for an Oscar in sound editing.
I caught up with Matthew Wood, supervising sound editor, and David Acord, supervising sound editor and sound designer, to discuss their work on the movie. We spoke about the most sound-intensive scene in the movie, some of the weirdest sound sources (cat purring), creating the voice of BB-8, recording the “Traitor!” line, and developing sounds for Kylo Ren.
