Tutorial for inserting music into After Effects

I decided to use a meditative soundtrack for Transcendence to create a hypnotic effect on the viewer. However, I went with a more processed and mechanised version of the classic Om to highlight the inspiration behind this piece: Zenyatta from the game Overwatch. I was fascinated by the idea of a robotic monk and its belief in the presence of a soul in artificial intelligence. Simultaneously empathetic and terrifyingly creepy, it delves into the Uncanny Valley of our evolving technology. The dissonance between the calming visuals and the eerie audio simulates the effect of the Uncanny Valley on the mind.
