Inside the ears of reality

Sound designers, composers, editors, directors and producers

A two day seminar about the sound of Nordic documentaries Saturday March 17. – Sunday 18.

Nordic documentaries are incredibly respected around the world, not least because of a very imaginative and atmospheric way of telling stories. Often sound and music are used in very creative ways and we have invited a handful of Nordic sound creators to talk about their distinctive work, both on film and in podcasts, and how to explore the sonic potential in documentaries.
