The future of film is Sound Synthesis

In a brief interview with Randy Thom at Siggraph last year, Randy Thom let loose with a projection for sound in film:
"I think that the future in terms of technology is in sound sythesis and very little R&D has been done in that compared to synthesis in the visual realm."

I'm excited for the same potentiality in game audio, and I hope as an industry we can lead the charge in the move towards runtime synthesis. With some stunning examples already I think we are well on our way.

More to come, into the FUTURE!
