Sound Design

I’m an aspiring sound designer. Since the summer of 2021, I’ve been actively studying and practicing the art and related subjects with the hope of making it a career (or at least a side job). That said, I’m not new to the world of sound, music, and editing. More about that in the experience section.

I’m looking for opportunities as an intern or junior sound designer, or as a sound designer for small projects/game jams

Other Experience

Although I’m new to audio in terms of career, I’ve been working with audio for most of my life as a hobby, and I have about 15 years of experience working as a part of creative and multi-disciplinary teams as a design-skilled web developer.

When it comes to audio, I’ve been playing around in DAWs for 15+ years, from working in radio to making my own songs and ambient compositions.

I have been working with Ableton Live for many years, but for sound design my main tool nowadays is Reaper. I have some basic Pro Tools skills, and I’m currently studying WWise to learn about implementation.

Radio

While I was in radio, I was regularly producing sweepers, promos, and similar things for myself and colleagues. Most of this involved using libraries of effects and manipulating them to make exciting material. In 2003, I won a national jingle contest (dutch link).

For a few years, I was the sole audio branding person on the team of an online radio station (TrackFM), which at some point reached 450.000 people each month. I made things like promos, sweepers and power intros1.

Connect with me

I would love to connect with other sound design people, so hit me up on social networks. I’m @marcohamersma on Mastodon, Twitter, and a bunch of other places.

  1. A power intro is kind of a branded remix of an intro to a song that radio stations sometimes add. It involves adding voiceovers and effects while often also cutting up or otherwise editing the original song a bit.
