AUDIO Experienced Sound Designer/Composer Looking for Work

Hi!

My name is Matthew Dear, I am a sound designer, composer, audio implementor and dialogue specialist. I've been creating in-your-face, highly varied audio assets for the past three years.
Here are a few points about me:

- I run a pro-quality home studio; capable of both realistic, high quality recordings and far-out conceptual effects/ambiences.
- I've been playing and composing music for 12 years, covering a wide variety of styles.
- You can view my Soundtrack, SFX and dialogue portfolios via my website
http://matthewdear.tumblr.com/
- I occasionally work as a freelance dialog editor & engineer at OMUK's London studio. OMUK are a London-based dialogue studio, working with AAA developers from around the world.
- I am experienced in audio implementation using Wwise and FMOD. I completed an online course using Wwise audio implementation software in 2015, graduating with an A. I've since used this knowledge to program my own audio systems.

Some examples of my previous work:
Heart Forth Alicia - Side-scroller RPG - SFX in collaboration with developer Alonso Martin

Unknown Fate - Upcoming first-person puzzle/exporation - SFX & sound design

I've had a very busy past couple of weeks, hence my delay in an update!

For now I've uploaded some sounds I made for Unity! As part of their new Unity Connect Service, the sounds are for the upcoming associated instant messenger service.

I've been working on a few new exciting projects and more work for Unknown Fate, but I can't reveal anything else yet! Watch this space

I've had a busy month of working on a variety of projects and doing dialog editing work at OMUK.

A couple of highlights:

If any of you are heading to Gamescom, be sure to check out Unknown Fate's booth! A first-person puzzle VR game with surrealist themes. I've been doing sfx and sound design for this project for the past few months.

At OMUK I edited the dialog for the recent Vermintide update, it was great to work on a game I've enjoyed so much since it's release.

Hi All!

I've been silent for a few months... because I've been working with OMUK doing dialog editing. Finally, I can reveal that I was working on Horizon: Zero Dawn Frozen Wilds DLC

I've been doing some sound design of my own as well, a new collection of sounds is up on my soundcloud:

Hey Folks

I've had another week of working at OMUK on a new project, but I'm looking for new projects from December onwards. So do get in touch if you like what you hear

There's a new soundreel on my soundcloud too. A showcase of a few 'realistic' foley-based sounds I made over the Summer.
