Not all sounds are created equally. There are sounds that demand just that extra attention. Kate Finan, from Boom Box Post, calls them “signature sounds”. They’re the sounds that give a movie or game character. Sounds that we can recall even when we are doing the dishes or having a conversation. These sounds bring characters […]

Whenever we add some sort of lo-fi effect to a sound we usually get two things, the removal of some details of the sound and the addition of artifacts. This can be a bunch of different things, like aliasing and quantization error in the case of bit crushing, distortion, speaker emulation, or the more complex […]

Lo-fi , or low fidelity, is a degraded reproduction of the original source. For the purposes of this article, we will- not surprisingly- focus on only the audio aspect of low fidelity. The reason it is used in audio so frequently is that it has the ability to simulate and mimic recording techniques and mediums, […]

When I think lo-fi, I think lo-fi sci-fi. I think of games like Alien Isolation, Bioshock, SOMA. Films like Alien and Blade Runner. I think of gritty, chunky sounds. Interfaces or devices that click and clatter and that have been through the ringer more than once. I think what makes lo-fi sci-fi so great […]

When thinking of voice user interfaces as pure technology, it may not sound appealing to some of us who are in this business for the art. Even when thinking of the technology behind the art, it is comprehensive why some people would shy away from it. What’s compelling about VUIs, however, is not necessarily the […]

The topic for the month is LoFi and I’m just having my morning coffee. Before taking this further, it would probably be worthwhile to define LoFi. HiFi is high fidelity and LoFi is low fidelity. A quick google search for the definition of fidelity, and I came up with “the degree of exactness with […]

Rafael De Cardenas, visionary designer, and Sahra Motalebi, sound artist, combined to bring an eerily unsettling, yet super aesthetic environment based on the design of the maze, entitled AMAZE. The space itself looks like a David Lynch movie combined with mid century modern design, and the sound is a wild, interactive vocal-only sound scape by […]

“LoFi” is a concept I am rather intrigued by. “LoFi” to me can mean creative, aesthetic, and technical limitations to a project. It can also mean “old”, in terms of resolution, fidelity, and durability. There is a bit of resurgence (or did it ever really go away) of using old media like vinyl, cassette, and […]
