Why does audio reach us on a visceral level in some games, but in others it does not? This talk explores that question through the lens of sound healing. Sound healing uses music, sound and vibration to inspire changes in a person's mind and body. It is a hot topic these days, and wellness is a rapidly expanding category for games and apps. This presentation demonstrates several time-honored sound healing principles and shows how they can be applied to the creative, business, and personal goals of a sound artist or composer. This talk provides tools to incorporate the powerful principles of Intention, Vibration, Binaural Beats, Cymatics, Entrainment, and Elemental Properties into an audio production workflow. These demonstrations provide a glimpse into a vast and underutilized treasure trove of knowledge that is opening up new creative and business opportunities in the game industry.


Attendees acquire a deeper understanding of sound healing principles, and they learn several techniques to deliver more emotionally resonant, compelling, and impactful sound and music. They gain career insights from an audio veteran who has many years of experience as an internal and external creative, and who is also a certified sound practitioner.

Intended Audience

This presentation is intended for anyone who works with audio or who has an interest in sound healing. It is designed to equip composers and sound artists with tools to increase the impact of their art and to find new business opportunities in the wellness space.
