Unfortunately, the word restriction often carries with it a negative connotation. Though within the creative process, restrictions can be quite beneficial, and sometimes inspiring. As Belle Beth Cooper explains in her Buffer blog post, “What restrictions do is take away some of the choices available to us, and with them, the paralysis of choice that stops us from getting started.” We all have restrictions that somehow shape our work (from a simple self-imposed framework or template to budget constraints, and so on) and this month we want to explore some of these restrictions from the perspective of sound design.
We here at Designing Sound ALWAYS encourage contributions from the community. If you would like to throw in your “two-cents” on this topic, please be in touch and let us know. As always, feel free to contribute to this month’s theme, or maybe next month’s topic is of more interest to you (which will be “Film Theory”), or go completely off-topic. Anything is fair game. Please contact doron [@] this website to get the ball rolling.
