Lecture given by Andy Farnell at Dolby, London on 9th April 2013.

As 3D CGI animation is to film and game visuals, procedural audio is the synthesis of sonic material, usually at the point of delivery, based on the behaviour and interaction of sounding object models. It offers enormous advantages for space efficiency and control, providing rich interactive experiences unavailable from sample based methods. Many see it as the future of game audio. Pioneering researcher and author of the textbook Designing Sound, Andy Farnell presents some examples and commentary on the subject.

This lecture was organised by the UK section of the Audio Engineering Society, which holds lectures on the first Tuesday of every month in the London area. For more information, please go tohttp://www.aes-uk.org/

Limitation as opportunity: LA-based beat maker TOKiMONSTA has perfected the art of using the confines of her bedroom studio in her favor. What started out as a necessity - having limited tools to craft her sample-based music - has now become her virtue. In this episode we see a collaboration with MNDR’s Amanda Warner taking shape, catalyzed through online interaction and materialized in real life.
