The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Master of Mayhem in Warner Brothers

tregThe genius of Carl Stalling has long been accepted. Often considered to be one of the most innovative composers of the 20th century. Sometimes forgotten is the Costello to Stalling’s Abbott- that of Tregoworth Edmond Brown¬†. “Treg” as he was called (although I’d be tempted to call him “Doc Brown” myself), was a brilliant composer himself, and an article from Neatorama called The Sound Effects Genius Behind the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies¬†will give a look at the amazing man and his inventive work. As audio drama producers everywhere tinker with the right sound, imagine Treg recording live bits, placing sounds together from Foley in his cabinet or rummaging through old film clips. However you put it, the success of the Warner Brother Cartoons had as much to do with the sound of the shorts as it did with the visuals!
