Randy Thom talked about creating sound for 'The Incredibles' in the following interviews:

#1 Mix Magazine

"My approach to the art is almost always to take something from the past and put an interesting twist on it. Young sound designers, I think, often get caught up in the idea of making a sound that's unlike anything anybody has ever heard before. But that's really hopeless. It also isn't very useful, because a sound needs a frame of reference."
