Assignment 2

Synthesis and Sound Design

Assignment #2


Character Study: Students will choose an animated character or object (or both) that they will create a design for through “ground-up” synthesis using Pure Data. Only original samples and field recordings will be allowed (no canned SFX) and field recordings must be manipulated via Pure Data. 

The character should be part of an animation or just an animatic and should consist of no fewer than 10 different sounds. Each sound should match the function that the character is performing. Ex: a motor sound should not sound like a laser blast, etc.
