The MADE will be hosting a small talk from David Earl and Camden Stoddard of Double Fine on there music and sound work in ‘Headlander’. It will be on Thursday April 20th at the MADE from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. There will be time after the talk for discussion with the presenters. Reserve a seat here to help us prepare, but a ticket is not required for the talk.
This talk explores the technique, workflow, and inspiration behind the sound palette of ‘Headlander’, a game by Double Fine and Adult Swim. Attendees will follow Camden Stoddard, audio director of Double Fine, and David Earl, composer, as they show how they developed their creative process through four main methods. The techniques discussed will include vocoding, subtractive synthesis, single source sound design, working with analog machines, and how to distill the aesthetic of a decade (the 70’s) down to its essence. They will also talk about the importance of engaging early with each other as well as the project team, and how that helped galvanize the true vision of Headlander’s soundscape.
