Symbols of Sound’s second Disney feature of this summer is the Pixar film “Elemental”. SoS transcribed all vocals from Lauv’s song “Steal The Show”, and created vocal sheet music that exactly matched the various versions of the song in the film. Disney used this sheet music to dub the film in numerous languages as it was prepared for worldwide distribution.
“Steal The Show” provided dubbing challenges with the heavy processing and synth/vocoder effects used to create the background sounds in the song. SoS’s vocal charts enabled foreign language performers to produce versions of the song that were true to the original, even if the audio effects used on the original vocals were not available.
