Colin Walder will talk about audio design in “Cyberpunk 2077” and whether cyberpunk can be recognized by its sound. Joanna Kaniewska (Weird Fictions Research Member) will run the meeting, and there’ll be some time for a Q&A too.
After earning a BSc in Physics with Space Science and Technology and an MA in Music Technology, Colin sought to realize his thesis “Intelligent Audio for Games” by entering the games industry as an audio programmer. In the years since he has worked on a number of AAA games, including GTA V, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Witcher 3: Wild hunt and Cyberpunk 2077. Throughout his career, Colin has sought to promote the role of audio in games and to develop new technologies for implementing and experiencing interactive audio. He is currently Code Lead for Audio and Localization at CD Projekt Red.
