ADR1FT Sound Designer Al Nelson

Sound design is one of the most important elements in ADR1FT. Getting all of the small details just right is absolutely critical to the experience and world we are trying to immerse you in. We want it to be unique, cinematic, emotional and unforgettable. We are going to great lengths to do things differently on this game and create something of the highest quality possible.

In order to achieve this, we went outside the game industry and are excited to announce that Al Nelson of Skywalker Sound will be creating and designing all of the audio on ADR1FT. We will also be recording all ADR1FT audio at Skywalker Sound, located on the world-famous Skywalker Ranch.

From our very first meeting, we had an instant creative and collaborative bond with Al. The film experience he brings to the project is the exact breath of fresh air we were looking for. His excitement and input have already transformed ADR1FT in ways we never expected or imagined and we couldn’t be happier with the results. His audio concepts are influencing every part of the game now and his enthusiasm is infectious.

Al is an award-winning composer/sound designer/sound editor with 20+ years of film and television experience. Some of his credits include:

“Alone in space, surrounded by wreckage, gasping for breath = endless sonic opportunities and some welcome challenges. What’s even more exciting to me is telling a story and presenting emotion with sound. Being invited to collaborate and create so directly with Adam and the team at Three One Zero is a rare opportunity and I’m so excited about where it’s taking us. This is going to be amazing!”
