We’ll be hosting our next Designing Sound Discussion Group on March 29th, at 2PM 4PM (U.S. Eastern). We’ll have supervising sound editor Michael Maroussas and the sound team of the film Orthodox [full disclosure, that includes me], which is currently in post-production, on to discuss the remote collaboration workflow for the film. Team members have worked remotely from their respective countries of residence, which includes Hungary, Italy, the UK, and the USA. This will be another panel discussion with time for questions at the end.

We’ll once again be conducting this via Google Hangout, so keep an eye out on the Designing Sound Google+ page on March 29th.

The panel will be recorded and available for viewing for any who can’t make the date and time. Don’t forget that we’ve got recordings of all of our past presentations available too!

The Sound of ‘Under The Skin’

In anticipation of the UK release of Under The Skin, style and culture portal Dazed Digital had a Under The Skin Day takeover, covering all aspects of Jonathan Glazer’s new extraterrestrial epic.

It included the film’s Supervising Sound Designer Johnnie Burn and Music Supervisor Pete Raeburn revealing a few of the techniques and considerations that went into creating Under The Skin’s alien soundscape. You can read their interview here. There is also a rather interesting timeline of the soundtrack’s evolution that can be downloaded as a PDF.

Burn is co-founder of the boutique sound design agency Wave Studios.

Musarc presents Field Studies 2014: Cours De Poetique

FS2013_BrandonLabelle_2

Field Studies is a four-day masterclass led by acclaimed international artists and composers, complemented by a programme of workshops, evening lectures, screenings and performances. First taught in 2010 and originally conceived as a field-recording course exploring sound in the context of architecture and the city, Field Studies attracts students from many different backgrounds due to the course’s eccentric curriculum and the people who teach it.

Field Studies is organised by Musarc, a research and teaching programme led by Joseph Kohlmaier at The Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, London Metropolitan University. Musarc explores performance and composition in relation to the creative process; investigates listening in the context of architecture and the city; and has at its heart one of London’s most progressive amateur choirs.
