The overall aim of the course is to gain an increased
understanding, awareness and experience of how sound can be
utilized to enhance the design experience of the form language and
user interface of a product.
The course includes introductions to both hard- and software
exercises related to the creative and technical aspects of sound
and hands-on experience on how to generate and manipulate designed
sounds. The course ends with a two-week group assignment where
Advanced Product Design students and Interaction Design students
