Sound designer Josh Shepherd (Arkistrate) and Nonlinear Audio Specialist Jasz Pike (Ritorto) demystify the world of sound design with an introduction to the practice, how it’s achieved and an interactive workshop to recreate sonic elements for the video game ‘Survival Shooter’.

In the first part of this session, music producer, sound designer, game-audio implementer and dBs Music student Josh Shepherd (Arkistrate) will offer insight into the basics of sound design, illuminating its key components, best practice and how easy it is to begin your sonic journey.
In the second part of this session, Jasz Pike (Ritorto) will lead a session looking at recreating the sounds of gunshots, impacts and environmental sounds to then be added into the isometric video game ‘Survival Shooter’.
