Harmony through Sound Design

BY IMAN FATTAH
@ VOL 19 ON SEP 23, 2014

Iman Fattah has been in the Indonesia's rock and experimental music world since approximately 15 years ago, as a guitarist in his own band; Zeke and the Popo and RAKSASA. Growing up, he never though music will be one of his greatest passion. In PechaKucha, Iman take us as he strips down music into one single element: sound. As an aspiring sound designer, he learned how to synchronize sound with visuals through film scoring project. 'Music' is not necessarily comes in 'band' form, instead, simple toe-tapping in dance rhythm is also music. The challenge in 'designing' sound is how far can we shape them, not only by hearing but also listening. Listen means paying more attention, so eventually we can create our own harmony.
