Sounds with a Vision: Cinematic Sound Design @ Sur Place Media | Montréal | QC | CA
This workshop teaches practical and theoretical ways of intertwining sound and vision within cinema.

This course will delve into the practical and theoretical ways of intertwining sound and vision within cinema. Over the course of the 4 sessions we will find inspiration from various art practices, such as painting (turn of the 19th century), music (early electronic music), and architecture (modernism), in the hopes of creating innovative soundscapes.


  • Participants should have some experience with audio and/or music production. Any audio software with a timeline can be used in this workshop.
  • Participants are encouraged to bring their own projects to develop in the workshop. Or, the teacher can provide sample projects to work on.

Workshop plan

The first session will explore the fundamentals of sound design (ADR, Dialogue editing, foley, music editing, sound effects) and the physics of sound in general.

The second session will attempt to establish sound design as an art form in itself, in which you make artistic decisions that impact the emotion, the structure, and overall feeling of your piece.

In the third session we’ll take a more hands on approach and attempt to apply the student’s artistic desires into the editing softwares, using tools like EQ, reverb, delay, and pitch shifters.

The last class will continue project work, and reinforce the tool kit of soundscape tools covered throughout the workshop.
