“UP” Sound for Film Profile from Michael Coleman on Vimeo.

Miguel Isaza has created a must-read new blog for anyone interested in sound design, and much to our delight has put it on noisepages. He’s being incredibly prolific with posts, covering creative projects to get your ideas flowing, terrific overviews of leading people in the field with links to interviews and resources for learning about their work, and tons of links for learning your craft technologically and artistically.


Naturally, Pixar figures prominently, with some of the best sound design on the silver screen in recent years. I’m looking forward to finally seeing UP; Michael Coleman offers the video above. See Miguel’s site for more links and interviews and an overview of the all-star team that did sound for Pixar’s latest.

Thanks for this great resource, Miguel; I’ll certainly be reading daily.

  • Thanks to you Peter!

  • Peter shares so much kewl stuff, I heart my CDM (both of them).

    Is Designing Sound part of the CDM family? The theme looks familiar (along with the favicon) and I'm looking for more overt links but it isn't obviously clear.

  • Thanks! Nope, it's not CDM; it's part of noisepages — we actually have to fix the favicon and the theming on noisepages to make that clearer. Noisepages is now an open community blogging platform. Think Noisepages : CDM as WordPress.com : um… okay, if WordPress did their own site. So this is Miguel — CDM in this case is just providing servers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • AHA! Thanks for the clarification, Peter. Very cool.

    @mcpepe: the keyboard you're talking should be is a N.E.D Synclavier! (niiiiice) ๐Ÿ™‚
