My name is Ivan, I am a composer and a sound designer.
I help people and companies to create the sound of a product. I write music, create sound effects, implement sound in the games and do a sound editing.
Customers contact me when they need to come up with the sound of a product, or when they already have a music or sound effects and want to get an additional content that fits the project perfectly. I can make a buzz of a bee funny or threatening with a sound, or make a hero brave or clumsy with a music.
I design an interactive music systems for games. This systems make the music adapt to a gameplay and help a player to play better. For the «Will It Ever End?» interactive story I wrote the score, that responds to player’s actions and changes as the story goes. For the game in the Kazan city park (Russia) I designed the music system, that helps a player to solve a puzzle. I design this systems using FMOD and Wwise.
I do mixing and mastering. I know the difference between dynamic ranges of trailers, commercials, movies and games. Also I can create sound for virtual and augmented reality.
To make a relevant sound I research everything I can about what I am working on.
When I designed a sound of mysterious magic sword I asked writers and artists everything about it. What is it made of? Was its creator evil or kind? Should player be afraid of a power of a sword or feel himself protected?
I interviewed pilots of a jet to recreate in a game what they hear in a cockpit. As a result, now I can start-up a Tu-144 and fly away.
