IN RECORDED COMMUNICATIONS, BOTH ENVIRONMENTAL AND MANMADE SOUNDS CAN BE USED TO COMPLIMENT OR REPLACE EITHER HUMAN OR SYNTHETIC SPEECH.

ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO UTILIZE SOUND EFFECTS FOR SPOKEN INFORMATION IS TO CREATE A PARTICULAR FEELING IN THE LISTENER FOR IMPROVED COMMUNICATIONS.

FOR EXAMPLE, THE FRIENDLY FEELING OFTEN EXPERIENCED WHEN HEARING A HORSEs HOOFBEATS. LIKEWISE, MOST PEOPLE WOULD AGREE THAT BIRD SONGS EARLY IN THE MORNING PRODUCES A HAPPY FEELING.

THE AUDIO APPLICATION OF THE EXPRESSION A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE BECAUSE HUMAN HEARING IS QUICKER THEN SEEING. IN OTHER WORDS, PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL RECORDED COMMUNICATIONS CAN OFTEN BE ENHANCED THROUGH THE CREATIVITY OF SOUND DESIGN.

ALSO, THE INTERNET OFFERS MANY SOUND BITE RESOURCES, SUCH AS THE FOLLOWING:

- SOUND DOGS DOT COM

- SOUND - IDEAS DOT COM

- FILMS DOT COM

IN ADDITION, HERE ARE SOME NOISE-MAKER IDEAS:

1. THUNDER-STORM

2. ANIMALS

3. MANUFACTURING

4. MILITARY

5. ELECTRONICS

6. CONSTRUCTION

7. PEOPLE

8. FIRE

9. WIND

10. HOUSEHOLD

11. AIRPLANES

12. POWER

13. OFFICE

14. VEHICLES

15. WATER

FINALLY, WHEN SEEKING A SOUND MATCH WITHIN THE RANGE OF POSITIVE THROUGH NEGATIVE FEELINGS, REMEMBER HUMAN EMOTIONS ARE OFTEN CULTURALLY BASED.
