Review of Sound Design from Hell

This piece is a must listen for all sound designers, aspiring or in need of inspiring. A short glimpse into the laboratory of a sound designer who create a visual world for the ears. I bet it will get you experimentin' with sounds yourself afterwards.
Darn...I can't stop humming "London Bridge is Falling Down". You'll know what I mean.
