Teaching Style

Professor Vicic wants his students to leave his classroom with an insight into how digital audio works and how produced sound is the foundation of so much of the media we consume. His goal is to teach students how to create compelling and engaging audio images for a listener, but also to understand how sound is used in media.

"No matter what situation one encounters, there's always a solution to be found. We work on the idea that you don't let yourself get boxed in by a problem, whether it's human, mechanical or something else! First thing to do is learn how to manipulate the sound, that the technical side and the content side are not mutually exclusive...together they make something brand new."
