Eye gouging noise


The sound of someone bursting someone's eyes out (like in game of thrones (spoilers)). Need something I can perform on stage. We tried the voice already, it didn't take so we need something easy and reliable.

More info please... not everyone has seen Game of Thrones. And what do you mean by 'perform on stage'? Does this affect the choice of prop/technique suitable? – Mark Durham – 2014-10-29T14:56:02.457

yeah so there's a part where a big guy bursts the eyes of his oponent with his thumbs and it's like a really grisly popping/gushing noise. And this is something I have to perform live on stage so it can't be huge or layered or anything unweildy – Jordan Spalding – 2014-10-29T19:07:46.323

1Just learned the term is "performable". as in can be done live. I need performable eye gouging – Jordan Spalding – 2014-10-29T19:35:05.360

2Does it need to work more than twice? – AJ Henderson – 2014-11-03T19:08:00.917

it doesn't need to work more than twice, but it does have to HAVE TO work the first time I try it – Jordan Spalding – 2014-11-04T19:57:10.450



For things like this I've used heavily cooked macaronis for the gooey sound in combination with messing around with a spoon in a jar of jam, and biting a special kind of big green grapes for the bursting of the eyes. Squeezing oranges, lemons and pomelos gives awesome squishy sounds as well. Mind you, the eye-sockets are hollows just like the mouth, there is pretty much you can do by forming it with your mouth. And jam tends to be a pretty pleasant thing to use for things like this no less ;-)

Then it's all up to choosing the right pieces, and the mixing of the components.

awesome, the cooked macaroni and spoon in jam is totally performable. I'm sure a grape would sound better but that's not as stage-friendly – Jordan Spalding – 2014-11-04T19:55:56.877

A practical solution that comes with a free salad, what's not to like? – Tom – 2015-02-04T09:57:34.903


alright what we went with was squeezing cooked spaghetti noodles in one hand that were soaked with water. It wasn't perfect but I think it got the idea of the effect across.
