Welcome to Ambiences month here on Designing Sound. Often referred to as Atmospheres or Backgrounds as well, this element of a program mix deserves more attention than it commonly receives. Though not as present as dialog or hard-synced sound effects, their contribution to the tone “in-the-moment” narrative is no less important. Look for the first featured article in a few short hours.
And because I said we would, December’s theme will be Reverb. If you have an article idea you’d like to pitch, for either this month or next, shoot me an e-mail at shaun.at.designingsound.org.
