Selfridge, Rod; Pauletto, Sandra


Sandra Pauletto


The craft of sonic interaction design (SID) for new digital objects is a non-trivial task. A deeper understanding of sound design practices employed by professional sound designers and Foley artists offers a rich source of knowledge which may inform future designs. Our research utilises a novel set of design briefs to examine and compare initial sound design ideas produced by four sound designers. Two participants are professional sound designers, while the other two are former professional sound designers who recently moved into academia. Results show a number commonality in ideas produced as well as uniqueness in approach and personal influences when completing the briefs.
