|Training & Technology
Design and Production
sound design and production training focuses on audio principles,
design concepts and listening skills that underpin creative and
effective production. Developing a vocabulary for and
understanding of the physical properties of sound and audio concepts
central to critical listening; how we "hear" and "experience" audio to
be better able to make use of it in different media. Studio
technologies are approached as tools to assist creation, not ends in
themselves, akin to a word processor program for writers.
Technology evolves and changes, but core listening skills remain
central to understanding and creation.
Reporting and Audio Feature Production
training in reporting and radio feature production focuses on telling
stories with sound. Radio and audio are very personal mediums
and, when effective, very visual
in the imagery evoked for listeners through the use of ambience,
actualities and scripts. Understanding how sound can expand a
listener's experience and understanding of an event or issue is central
to learning to use the media.
Technology in Performance and Publishing
was an early adopter of new technologies to streamline and expand
production. Soundbites holds patents that relate
to music performance, licensing and distribution, incluing a Method of Providing a Musical Score and
Associated Musical Sounds Compatible with the Musical Score.
