Foley Sound Effects – Rusty Levers Broken Glass & Metallic Hits

Recording foley sound effects in an abandoned mine in Cyprus.

My “foley” studio is the world and to find great unique sound effects, I have to go out and be creative. Sometimes I visit very unusual places like the abandoned mine in Mitsero, Cyprus.

We recorded on several locations. With a hammer I recorded impact sounds on different metallic surface inside the building.

I shuffled broken window glasses with my shoes and was able to capture probably one of the best sound effects outside.

The two levers I found above the mine shaft created an intense rusty squeaking sounds that blow me away. Very spooky and just perfect for sound design or experimental music makers.
