As part of a sound design course Youtuber Chloe Erb has stripped all of the song lyrics and musical composition for Miley Cyrus’s Wreaking Ball video. The natural sound of the video is then left, including the dragging sledgehammer, wreaking ball chain and even Miley’s licking.
The result is the weirdest collection of raw sounds ever constructed for a music video. The chain of the wreaking ball swinging is eerily creepy, the sound of breaking brick after being struck with a sledgehammer by Miley echoes throughout the video. Then, when it couldn’t get any weirder, Chloe is creating words and licking sounds to the images in the video that horrors are made of.
