The Beauty of Sound

About our new podcast project:

A podcast about the power of audio. It’s about the influence of sound on human perception. 

As the assistant producer and creator of this podcast I will, produce each episode in my studio in the center of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

I will, edit the interviews, remove the narrator’s side of the conversation and condense the story to be tightly focused on Sound Design, Voice & Audio Branding. In this podcast series we will create 8 episodes. We’ll highlight distinctive and unique sounds and strategies and piece by piece, tell the story of how and why they were made and implemented.

Every episode also includes an audible tutorial geared explicitly towards marketers and Brand strategist to help them to get started with Audio Branding. Learn how to exploit the emergent power of audio now and prepare for the future. Because due to The Rise of Voice audio has become more important than ever before.

The Beauty of Sound is made possible by our sponsors. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor on the show, please contact me at mail@maikelvanderwouden.com

3D Audio

3D audio is the digital recreation of sound we hear everyday in the real world. It’s always around us and it can come from any direction. This is what we call spatial sound. It combines the interactions between acoustic sound waves, the space and interactions with our head and ears. Most immersive audio concepts have existed for decades. But the interest in immersive audio has increased enormously in recent years…

More Creators, Do We Need Them?

Software is a great combination between artistry and engineering. – Bill Gates. The term engineering is derived from the Latin ingenium, meaning “cleverness” and “to contrive, devise”. To plan, or invent by careful thought. This inspired me. These days a lot of people call themselves a creator. To “create” means to put something into existence.
