Sound Design in Context (W3094)
15 credits, Level 5
You engage with the fundamental principles of sound creation and manipulation. You do this through exploration of sound design practices in a range of contexts including game sound, virtual reality and other interactive media, film, TV, radio, theatre, and live sound applications.
By examining the work of influential sound design practitioners we support you in practical exploration of sound design methodologies and techniques. This includes:
- field recording
- multichannel spacialisation
- the manipulation of sound recordings using DAWs and analogue recording devices to achieve a desired aesthetic.
