The Theory of Sound Design

The Theory of Sound Design

In this fascinating seminar class, learn how sound functions in film to create a sense of time and place.

Thursday, May 14, 2015 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

From the clash of swords in an ancient battle to the distant sound of an owl at night, effective sound design gives meaning to noise. Sound designers communicate by immersing the audience in a sonic universe unique to the narrative. This seminar class will cover the concepts of creating foley, layering individual elements into complex sound effects, and how sound can affect one’s perception of time and space.
