Creating with Constraints: A Sound Design a Day
Video game sound designer Kyle Vande Slunt has embarked on a challenge of recording a sound and using the raw recording source to add on sound design and musical elements. “I let experimentation naturally evolve,” says Kyle of his daily sound design project.
He started the project in May to get better at field recording and manipulating found objects to create unique sounds.
“It seemed like the best solution to improve several skills all at the same time. I’ve only been doing it for two months and can already see massive, positive changes in a lot of different areas,” says Kyle from his home in Champaign, Illinois.
Hear Kyle share more about why he’s interested in using field recordings to inspire and motivate him to continue flexing his sound design skills in this audio interview.
Enjoy highlights from Kyle’s daily creations from June, featuring sounds of pulling velcro to a dog panting as inspirations to meld additional sound effects together.
