THE ART OF SOUND DESIGN - so much more than 'crash bang wallop'

Adding a sprinkling of magic to your business presentations, in the form of custom identity music, voice-overs, sound effects or background music. will ensure that your audience gains the maximum possible experience and your business, the maximum potential. Just as good graphics design brings your visual identity into focus, good sound design can create a strong emotional focus to your project.

Oddly, your sound designer's job is to make things 'look' better. Audio adds realism and depth, by making the actions and the setting far more believable, by reinforcing a visual message and by changing the mood or pace. An effective soundtrack can bring lacklustre content to life, just as a poorly produced one can knock the shine off even a highly polished production. It's all about creating audio which has the right 'feel' for the job.

The Atomic Audio Association is here to help businesses improve the impact of their product promotions, seminars, exhibitions, web and computer presentations by acting as sound-doctor to its clients. By creating custom music and audio, you avoid the pitfalls of using stock sound. As it's not specifically created for your project, stock sound may not exactly fit. Like clip art, it is also recognizable and those over-used effects or soundtracks can give your production that been-there, seen-that feeling.

Nigel Watts-Plumpkin is your sound designer and foley artist (sound effects specialist - named after Jack Foley, a 1950s radio and movie sound pioneer and Universal Studio technician).

Sound design - the emotional language of the moving picture - is so much more than 'crash bang wallop' but, if that's what's required...
