Subject(s): Summary: "This book is the first of its kind, in producing a modern text for sound design as a practice independent of visuals. It combines theories from academic research into media (including audio-visual media) with hands-on exercises and practice, scaffolding the skills in each chapter to build a creative, technically proficient sound designer. There are over 175 exercises in total, and there will be supporting video and audio examples and tutorials on the accompanying website that will help a reader with their practice, as well as PowerPoint slides to encourage an instructor to adopt the program. The book will also include a number of interviews with sound designers to provide real-world examples. Studying Sound will begin from the very foundational elements of learning about hearing and listening to the basics of acoustics and psychoacoustics to recording, sound effects, mixing, and then end with a more theoretical exploration of sound design"-- Provided by publisher
