The remix artist Pogo continues to mess with sound and image, the better to make you shake your ass. (Even if you’re just sitting at a desk.) Last time Pogo did some wonderful work with Pixar’s Up to produce the bouncy Upular. Now he’s remixing sound and video from Terminator 2 to create Skynet Symphonic. It’s a tune with a decidedly harder edge (starting off a bit like something Front Line Assembly would once have done) though Edward Furlong’s doe eyes soften the effect here and there.
As Pogo says on the clip’s YouTube page:
Comprising nothing but small sounds recorded from the James Cameron masterpiece ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day’, ‘Skynet Symphonic’ is my tribute to one of the greatest action features of all time! Each section is composed entirely of sounds from a major scene in the film. For example, the Terminator pounding on the fire escape door is used as a kick drum. Bones breaking play the role of a snare. Electrical disturbance acts as a crash cymbal. Turn up your cones and enjoy!
