Hi I’m Sarah Sherlock !
I am an enthusiastic and experienced sound designer from Dublin, Ireland, focused on creating compelling audio for games. I have a range of sound + music production skills, In depth knowledge of the creative and technical requirements of bringing linear and interactive media to life with audio.
I work with game developers and production companies to deliver amazing, high quality experiences with sound! I’ve an eclectic background in music production and performance before getting into audio design. I have always been interested in creative media, music, film & video games, and as I started to experiment with producing and recording my own music, collecting instruments to create my own sounds, I found my passion in the world of game audio. Designing audio for games is the most rewarding experience for me!
I completed a post graduate in Sound & Music for Interactive Games at Leeds Beckett University, UK 2020. Here I acquired the skills of implementation of audio into game engines to compliment my music and sound design skills. Currently I am based in the UK and working with new studio Bonsai Collective on the upcoming ‘Luna Abyss’.
Additionally, I studied for 4 years at Pulse College, located in Windmill Lane Recording Studios in Dublin. Having graduated on their (C.M.P.G.) Diploma in Music Production for Games and a further BA (Hons) in Music Production, I learned my production skills over a range of sound and music creative and technical modules. During this time I also attended many guest lectures and masterclasses from established film and game composers and music producers. I became an Intern for the studio for short time after completing my studies here. For my undergrad dissertation, I chose to focus on scoring for visual media and rescored Frankenstein (1931) with an experimental soundtrack, whilst exploring the history of horror film soundtracks. I was lucky to present this project at Horror Expo Ireland in 2017! This led me to pursue freelance projects as a composer for visual media before finding my calling in video game sound design.
When I’m not working on audio projects, I can also be found playing games, swimming, kayaking, socialising, watching films, painting, and spending time with my dogs! If you have any queries or think I’d be a good fit your project or studio, please do get in touch!
