What is the role of a sound designer

  1. 1. What is the role of a Sound Designer? A sound designer is a very important aspect of a live event or for media such as film, Music etc. Sound is seen as the final and one of the most vital aspects of one of these things for various reasons. Emotion, a Sound Designer must consider the effect the music has on the audience; the sound evokes emotion and highlights the themes of the piece. Sound can also juxtapose what is being viewed, for example a pleasant sound in a scene which is unpleasant; this also can affect the audience. The Sound Designer is also responsible for ensuring that singers sound natural (as the process can make a natural voice sound unnatural and distorted) they do this by adjusting the pitch, volume Echo etc. on a Sound Desk, they also control the channel of the voice which allows the Designer to make the voice stand out from the instruments. Sound Designersmake use of editing to manipulate the sound to the director’s (or performer’s) liking. This may be to reflect the mood of the piece to the audience which again evokes emotion. Use of diegetic and non-diegetic sounds will also do this as non-diegetic music can be used again to betray the nature of the scene.
