Adventures in III Audio: 'Yoku's Island Express'


'Yoku's Island Express' presented a unique challenge to its audio designers: how do you score the world's first open world, 2D side-scrolling pinball/Metroidvania mashup? LucasArts alumni Audio Lead Tom Bible and Composer Jesse Harlin will walk you through the process of mashing together genres, techniques, and technologies using their combined decades of game audio knowledge to bring AAA polish to an indie title and help create one of the best reviewed games of the year. Tom and Jesse will discuss not only creative voice editing and processing, but also creative music editing and processing and how to mash together Tuvan throat singing and NES chiptunes. Jesse will also discuss the sourcing of instrumentalist talent from a diverse background without breaking the indie budget.
