SAE Atlanta Graduate Does Sound Design on Top Rated Video Game


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 29, 2014

2014 SAE Atlanta Audio Technology Program Graduate Tony Voelkl did the sound design for Tap Tap Meteorite, a top rated video game thats available for free download in the Google Play store. Game review blog Shootzngiggles describes Tap Tap Meteorite as a simple, elegant action game, and says that it seems to understand the simple fun behind it more than most.

The opportunity to work on Tap Tap Meteorite came about through the tech community site Reddit, says Voelkl. I posted my sound design demo reel on their game development page, and a few days later the programmer and creator of the game emailed me and offered me the job. My goal was to create an audio experience that was memorable but not distracting or annoying, since gamers tend to play for hours and I didnt want to hurt their ears.

Voelkl is a native of Dayton, Ohio and a 2013 graduate of Carroll High School. Growing up, he had a passion for music, and was mostly a self-taught guitarist and songwriter. His other primary interest was gaming, and his long term goal was to combine these two areas as a producer of music and sound for video games.

When I decided that I wanted to pursue an education in audio engineering with an eventual focus on gaming, I looked at a number of audio engineering programs at different schools, says Voelkl. I eventually enrolled at SAEs Atlanta campus in 2013 because of the curriculum, the facilities, and the opportunity to work on state-of-the-art equipment and learn from instructors who are currently working in the industry.

Prior to his SAE education, Voelkl was turning knobs and tweaking things with no idea of what they did. After earning his Audio Technology Program diploma from SAE, he had deeper understanding of the art and science and audio engineering, which is helping him to achieve specific sounds for his design work.

Currently, Voelkl is pursuing a B.S. degree in computer science at Wright State University in Dayton, OH. Hes also working on three video game projects, one of which is called Pigment and will be released on the gaming site Steam.

My advice for SAE students who are interested in working in sound design for the gaming industry is to take advantage of the access that they have to their schools studios, because theyre truly some of the best that Ive ever worked in, says Voelkl. Also, start building your credit list and demo reel as soon as possible by networking on Reddit and Newgrounds and introducing yourself to programmers who need sound designers for their games. A great way to show off your work is to do sound re-designs by taking a scene from a well-known game or movie and replacing the audio with an entirely new soundtrack that youve created. Finally, build relationships with the staff at SAE because theyre in the industry right now, and they could possibly have connections to help jumpstart your career.

'The Shaukeens' review: Nothing much lifts of in the movie
But the reprise mixes a star (Akshay Kumar) swanning about playing himself, and doing, I might add, a better job than he has in his last few films, which takes away from the chief focus. Which is not such a bad thing, because the trio of dirty old men ...
