Deep Note - The THX Sound

Music thing has done a great interview with Dr James 'Andy' Moorer about the creation of the THX sound.

"'At the same time Tom Holman was also working at Lucasfilm. He had developed what is now called the THX sound system. It was to premiere with Lucasfilm's 'Return of the Jedi.' They were making a logo to go before the film. I was asked by the producer of the logo piece to do the sound. He said he wanted 'something that comes out of nowhere and gets really, really big!' I allowed as to how I figured I could do something like that. "

A very interesting read.
