AES Scotland are delighted present a lecture by Orfeas Boteas and Matthew Collings from Edinburgh based company Krotos Ltd on "Creature Sound Design".
There are limited places available for this event so we will be opening up registration to AES Members only until the 29th Sept, then will release any remaining spaces to non-members.
Designing sound for custom creatures for film, TV and games can be a time-consuming and costly procedure. We will discuss traditional methods of going about this process, as well as more contemporary solutions, including real-time processing. We'll also discuss treating this aspect of sound design as a performance, focusing on the expressivity and subtle nuances that can be achieved by taking this approach.
