“Making sound yourself is like turning something from 2D into 3D.”
Noodlecake Studios' squirrel surveillance game NUTS stands out in particular for its exemplary art style and the way it sounds - no other game gave me the feeling of being in a forest quite like it. The latter aspect is courtesy of Almut Schwacke. Among her many skills - she's a composer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, sound designer and sound editor - I took a particular interest in foley design. Foley design is not a discipline many of us are familiar with, but it's an integral part of sound design.
Build Back Better World!
Almost every report from the proceedings of the recent G7 summit in Cornwall contained three words: “Build Back Better”. This summed up US President Joe Biden and other G7 leaders’ global infrastructure initiative, Build Back Better World, an expansion of Biden’s earlier Presidential campaign slogan.
Over the decades, such slogans have become a vital way to communicate to voters what parties and politicians stand for. They’re also handy for inflamed supporters to chant at rallies and use as social media hashtags. Here, as with so much else, advertising and marketing tactics are increasingly used to make people choose one electoral brand over another.These slogans can range from the inspirational to the banal to the quirky. In India, to mention just three of several, there was the much-recalled “Garibi Hatao”, the much-derided “Achche Din Aane Wale Hain”, and the much-mocked “Jab Tak Samosa Mein Rahega Aalu, Bihar Mein Rahega Lalu”.For linguistic anthropologist Adam Hodges, the most effective slogans are those that resonate with the political campaign’s larger theme, as well as being memorable and repeatable. He singles out Obama’s “Yes, We Can” for praise because of its “intertextual resonance with historical usages and the campaign’s own central message”.

World's Tallest Residential Skyscraper
Paul Clemence has released a new series of images, showcasing the on-going construction works on Manhattan's Central Park Tower. The project is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill architecture and is set to be the tallest residential building in the world once completed. The building, as seen in the photographs, has neared completion and is set to open later this year. The landmark tower will stand at 1,550 feet (472 meters) along Manhattan’s 57th Street corridor, also known as “Billionaire’s Row". It features luxurious condominium residences, dynamic amenity spaces, as well as a 285,000-square-foot Nordstrom department store. The 7-story flagship Nordstrom store features a curved glazed façade, allowing natural light into the Rottet Studio-designed interior. On the 100th floor, residents will have a 15,000-square-foot terrace, indoor and outdoor pools, a playground, and a fitness center.
