FAO CAA Year 1: Story / Project 1 / Soundscapes 2019 / Examples Of Previous Student Work

With its emphasis on 'sound', presenting your 'soundscape' project visually can represent a challenge.  How, for example, to express a 'sonic concept'?  How to create engaging experiences of your sonic creations and likewise their creative development?  Take a look at these examples for guidance and inspiration!

Sonic Concepts expressed as 'Word Clouds'

The three final soundscapes; note how sensitive graphic design and the addition of subtle animation enrich the listening experience.

The brief requires you to archive and present the creative development of your soundscapes - to include all original recordings and then the resulting vocabulary of post-produced SFX originating from them.  You'll need to think about how you can present your workflow engagingly and clearly.

You're also asked to profile a sound designer (for film, television or game etc) - check out this profile of Yuu Miyake - complete with embedded links to cited soundtracks!

Sound Designer - Profile

Your Soundscape project is submitted to your blog only; there is no presentation or crit, so you're not there to fill any blanks or offer further insight into your work.  For this reason, you need to think very carefully in terms of designing your submission to be a 'one-stop shop' and ensuring that it is self-explanatory and organised meticulously in line with the stipulations of the project brief.

As discussed at today's briefing, I also want you to find visually creative and professionalised ways of archiving your 'sound explorations': I want to see you capture your sound expeditions and your 'exotic locations'.  If you create some kind of ad-hoc sound-making contraption or gather together a fascinating array of 'noise-makers' - I want to see it!  Have fun... and prove it!
