David’s workshops rock! His mastery of the material is clear from the first lesson. What really sets David’s workshops apart, though, is his gift for teaching, and personal interest in student’s work. He invited me to share a commercial film I was making with the class, and as a result I gained insights that  helped me win quick approval of the project from my client. In that way, the class paid for itself right away.

*** FOUR WEEKS OF PERSONAL COACHING – You will be invited to screen your sound design projects, finished or works-in-progress, for detailed, interactive feedback. This is undoubtedly the most powerful form of learning, where you can apply all the theory into your own work and creativity.

*** TWELVE HOURS of Lectures and Demonstrations of Sound Design principles. 
You will have access to the recordings of this entire coursework theory and application with case studies to view as many times as you would like for the next 3 months.  The six modules cover:
1. THE INTELLIGENT EAR – Listening Modes, Sound Qualities and Bipolarities
By deconstructing the listening experience into discrete elements, the grammar of sound design language gives you access for clear and powerful communication.
2. PLUG-IN POWER – Size, Distance, Speed and Non-Physical Reality
Understanding principles of real world acoustics and palette of subjective auditory experiences offers you enlightened use of digital processing tools.
3. RULES OF the BRAIN ROAD – Psychoacoustic Principles and Applications
When the curtain is lifted on how humans process auditory information, you master the art of sonic illusion (creating and hiding) as essential tools in sound editing.
4.  SONIC TIME-SPACE CONTINUUM – Soundscapes and Sound Spheres
Creating an effective cinematic space depends on familiarity with your physical and social environment, and the knowledge of how to psychologically orient yourself through audio.
5. AUDIO BUILDING BLOCKS – Constructing Sound Events and Sound Objects
Mastering techniques of sequencing, layering and mixing will infuse sonic fragments (sound effects, words) with meaningful messages (sound phrases, sentences).
6. PEOPLE, PLOT AND PASSION – Narrative Structure and Sound Mapping
Bottom line, how can sound help tell your story?  By understanding dramatic elements of character and emotion, the map can guide you to creative and impactful decision-making.

    Hello, David. I have your book and I’m a big fan of your work. I’d like to know when will you open de online classroom in 2013. I’m looking forward to more information about it. Thanks and keep the mind flowing! Regards, Luiz.

      Thanks for getting in touch! The webinar series will be available as a recording beginning March 13, as a reward on crowdfunding Kickstarter for supporting the upcoming music game that I’m developing. There is also a reward that will include live coaching, if you have a project that you’d like some individual feedback. Please visit again at that time. I think you might enjoy this gaming sound design approach very much, fun and interactive!

        Hi, David. Thanks for the answer.

        Sorry, but I didn’t understand what you said. If I support the Kickstarter campaign I’ll be able to enroll to the webinar? Is that? And what do you mean when you say “available as a recording”?

        Frankly when I visited the website I didn’t quiet understand how your course takes place. But I’m primarily interested in what you have to say more then how you’re gonna do that. =) Anyway, clearly I’d like to understand how it’s gonna happen exactly. Where can I find this information?

        And, please, clarify this webinar and the 3DeafMice situation for me. I think the project is great and I’ll gladly support it. I just didn’t understand how the webinar and the project are related.

        Thanks in advance and I’m sorry about this misunderstanding. English is not my first language (as you can notice) and maybe the problem lies exactly there. =)

        Regards, Luiz De Simone (from Rio de Janeiro)
