Giving your world a voice
Sound engages the audience in an immersive way.
Remember the concept of immersion?
When you add sound, you incorporate hearing into the experience and that makes the world more immersive.
Sound evokes emotion, mood, and emphasizes and connects what people see in the world.
It moves people in a way that visuals can’t.
Combining sound and visuals in a world evokes what neither can do alone.
