Product description

Review

"Andy Farnell's

"Putting the creativity of every single sonic nuance in the hands of the sound designer--and the listener--is the gift that Farnell brings through his book "Designing Sound". What an empowering experience!"--David Sonnenschein, Director, Musician, and Author of "Sound Design: The Expressive Power of Music, Voice and Sound Effects in Cinema"

"Andy Farnell's "Designing Sound" is a fantastic and incredibly inspiring book. With hundreds of fully working sound models, this 'living document' helps students to learn with both their eyes and their ears, and to explore what they are learning on their own computer. Perfectly balanced between theory and practice, the book will help students and professionals alike to develop and refine the skills and understanding that they require to synthesize the worlds of sounds around them and the sounds in the imagined worlds of advertising, TV, film, computer games, and their own original audio art. A great textbook, a great workbook, a great way to actually learn how to design sounds--I can't wait to use "Designing Sound" in my classes."--Richard Boulanger, Professor of Electronic Production and Design, Berklee College of Music

"An excellent, practical introduction to sound synthesis methods. The most useful resource on Pure Data that I've come across. Essential reading for anyone wanting to learn how to create sounds."--Karen Collins, Canada Research Chair in Interactive Audio, University of Waterloo

"A monumental work. This surely has the potential of becoming the sound designer's bible!"--Kees van den Doel, Scientific Computing Laboratory, University of British Columbia

About the Author
