The School of Sound

Celebrate and explore the amazing music of video games and the extraordinary talent behind it.

THE SCHOOL OF SOUND began in 1998 as a single, four-day event aimed at exploring the creative use of sound in the arts and media, with a special emphasis on film and screen productions. It was responding to the limited opportunities to study sound, particularly for film. Our first event attracted over 200 people from 25 countries. The programme featured Walter Murch, Michel Chion, Piers Plowright, Mike Figgis, Laura Mulvey, Peter Kubelka and the Quay Brothers.Since then, the SOS has expanded its programme to include weekend seminars, intensive practical workshops, lectures, ‘listening’ events, consultancies for professional practitioners and, of course, the international symposium held every two years.
