Sound Design


About the Series

The Sound Design series takes a comprehensive and multidisciplinary view of the field of sound design across linear, interactive and embedded media and design contexts. Today’s sound designers might work in film and video, installation and performance, auditory displays and interface design, electroacoustic composition and software applications, and beyond. These forms and practices continuously cross-pollinate and produce an ever-changing array of technologies and techniques for audiences and users, which the series aims to represent and foster.

The Sound Design series regularly produces edited collections. If you are interested in writing a chapter for an upcoming volume, please email your chapter idea to the series editor as a 300-word abstract. The editor will keep your proposal on file and contact you should it suit a future edited collection that will be appearing in the series. Interested authors and editors can contact the series editor, Michael Filimowicz ([email protected]), or the Routledge acquisition editor, Hannah Rowe ([email protected]), for submitting a proposal.
