Sound Design

Dave Schroeder of Pilotvibe talks about sound design for interactive multimedia on CommArts' Design Interact.

I think we all know that music and sound affect people intensely. It affects moods and emotions, triggers memories and helps define environments. Itís said that a picture is worth a thousand words; the same is true of audio. It can convey specific information via language or environmental sounds and it can communicate extremely abstract ideas via music and synthesized sounds.

Sound is the invisible font pack. Itís also a way for developers to give their work a presence beyond the monitor. Sound comes into a room and moves around. It becomes part of the userís environment. You canít touch it, but you can definitely feel it.
