"In our highly technological profession, it is important to remember that the tools we use do not create art. We must master them so they can be used to realize our own ideas. The field of sound design challenges students to become proficient in a wide-ranging skill set that includes sophisticated hardware and software. I want my students to meet that challenge but also to become adept in connecting to the creative impulse that generates great design."

Stephen Michael LeGrand | Sound design professor
