Sound now pervades through all things, and no form of modern communication is without it, from the subway to the internet, from radio to fashion, from video to advertising to the media in general.

The sound designer is able to work with all types of sound communication and to produce soundtracks consisting of music, speech, sound effects and other electronic manipulations, using finished products (including but not limited to music) and tools to create sound – principally the computer, but also recording studios, mixers etc.

The applications of sound design are infinite, with many still being actively developed, such as sound for the web; applications include cinema, media, dvd and cd-rom, advertising, installations, multimedia, audio and video art, company events and exhibitions.

Remarkable is that teacher who accomplishes himself what he teaches to others.
