Introduction to Sound Design (Online)

Nicola is a sound designer and composer for theatre, film and commercial media across the UK, US and Asia, and is one of The Old Vic 12. Nicola has designed this workshop for GCSE and A level students taking part in The Old Vic’s Schools Club programme, but anyone with an interest in sound design can take part.

This workshop will help you understand what a sound designer does and give you the chance to try creating your own sound design for a piece of text. It’s broken down into sections so you can complete it in your own time and at your own pace. Nicola will lead you through each section, after which you will find a creative exercise for you to try at home. You’ll need a pen and paper or a computer to make notes as you go.

If you get stuck and need any assistance you can contact us via email.

Remember, this workshop isn’t about getting things right – it’s about your artistic ideas. Good luck and have fun.
