Week 05 – Lecture – Cardiff & Burtt

Matthew and Joe presented on Janet Cardiff and Ben Burtt.

A couple of key takeaways:

Janet Cardiff

  • Canadian artist known for sound and video walks and installations
  • Pioneered ASMR, directional sound
  • Provided interactive and personal experience

Ben Burtt

  • Works as a sound designer, foley artist, director, screenwriter, voice actor
  • Considered the father of modern sound design because of his concepts:
    • Went out into nature and looked for sounds rather than relying on computers or foley studio
    • If something is a mistake or broken, record it and mix it
    • The importance of silence before the impact – builds anticipation
