March was kind of a banner month for us wasn’t it?! There was a lot of enthusiasm about exploring the intersection of sound design and music. So please check out all of the excellent contributions from the community, and leave a comment to thank those people who donated their time to the subject.
- Karen Collins – who kicked the month off by taking us straight into the gray area that both occupy
- Randy Thom – for talking about the potentials for collaboration between the music and effects departments
- Martin Stig Andersen – explored some of the ways sound can be use to invoke or add meaning in a narrative, whether it be dialog, effects or music
- Doron Reizes – put out a call for more communication and cross pollination with our musical siblings
- Yuki Ichiki – talked about his work with some of the more synesthetic ever created
- Ali Lacey – walked us through the de-construction of a toy instrument
- Nils Frahm – who spoke about his aesthetic tastes and creative process
- Brendan Hogan – showed us that musical sounds can be found in any recorded object
- Carlos Alberto Manrique Clavijo – who delivered a full treatise on the common grounds between music and sound design
- Skip Lievsay – for pointing out the musical nature of film and film sound, and talking about some of his work on more musically oriented projects.
- Scanner – for sharing his opinions on the interrelationship between sound and music
Like I said, an amazing response from the community. Thanks to everyone who contributed! Remember to contact us if you have something you’d like to share with the community. Tomorrow beings an exploration of DSP environments. While some other sites will be having their “April Fool’s” fun, we’ll be staying out of the shenanigans. Thanks for a great March!
