Sound, Words, Music
Music, Sound, and Word design operations:
different and complementary
Music design is naturally split between composition and arranging operations as composition is more focused
on melody design while arranging is more focused on accompaniment and harmonic design.
Recorded and synthesized music are typically layered into multiple instrumental tracks.
Sound design includes: recording, processing, synthesizing, and assembling acoustic and electronic sounds and effects.
Recorded and synthesized sounds and sound effects are typically layered into multiple sound and effect tracks.
Designing spoken and sung word tracks add two important and specific considerations, meaning and language.
Recorded and synthesized words are typically layered into multiple dialog tracks and grouped by language.
