MattDearGameAudio - SFX/Music/Dialogue/Audio Implementation - Matthewdeargameaudio - Mar 5, 2015 03:43 AM

Hi!

My name is Matthew Dear, I am a sound designer, composer, audio implementor and dialogue specialist. I've been creating in-your-face, highly varied audio assets for the past three years.
Here are a few points about me:

- I run a pro-quality home studio; capable of both realistic, high quality recordings and far-out conceptual effects/ambiences.
- I've been playing and composing music for 12 years, covering a wide variety of styles.
- You can view my Soundtrack, SFX and dialogue portfolios via my website
http://matthewdear.tumblr.com/
- I occasionally work as a freelance dialog editor & engineer at OMUK's London studio. OMUK are a London-based dialogue studio, working with AAA developers from around the world.
- I am experienced in audio implementation using Wwise and FMOD. I completed an online course using Wwise audio implementation software in 2015, graduating with an A. I've since used this knowledge to program my own audio systems.

Some examples of my previous work:
Heart Forth Alicia - Side-scroller RPG - SFX in collaboration with developer Alonso Martin

It's been a while since I've posted! I've been busy with my Berklee online course on audio implementation, as well as the following project...

I designed all the sound effects and ambiences for Winged Cloud's visual novel, Sakura Fantasy, which has been released on steam today!

You can listen to a soundreel of some my personal favourite sfx and ambiences:
