Sound can be an instrument of creative self-expression in case you are able to apply the necessary skills and knowledge to your ideas. Our main goal is to provide all the essential instruments and techniques and to teach you to apprehend the dramaturgy of sound for further implementation of your ideas.
Vasiliy Filatov
The founder of the Institute of Sound Design
The Institute of Sound Design is an educational project by Vasiliy Filatov which was created specifically for training dedicated experts in the field of sound.
The Institute Study Program was developed in such a way that by the end of the course the alumni would be competent enough to work in any field of sound and gaming industry, such as cinematography, animation, computer games, and interactive multimedia.

Students of the Institute get the chance to study under the tutelage of mentors that happen to be some of the prominent specialists of the industry and to learn from the guest professionals, as well as to master all the skills of working both on the set and in the studio within one intensive academic year. To accomplish that, the Study Program involves the method of interchanging book knowledge and practice run in the actual projects of the industry.

Students receive knowledge, new skills and expert evaluation from significant representatives - both Russian-based and foreign, as well as they put together a well-worked portfolio which is going to let the graduates proudly join the professional community.

Handbook for sound engineers
Изучение специализированной литературы по специальности – обязательная часть программы обучения.
Studies are exciting! We create educational programs to make the process of learning interesting. Presentations, workshops, masterclasses, visiting the best studios, and practice, of course.
Terms of apprenticeship
1 year

Start date
November, 1st 2017
Preliminary enrollment is available for all courses
You would find this course useful if you have just started exploring the world of sounds and music and wish to be able to find your way with sound editors and use any type of recorders and microphones with confidence. The course would also be suitable for those who has already had some experience working with the sound but wishes to consolidate their knowledge.
The course program includes the acquisition of theoretical and practical knowledge in working with sound in the gaming industry and working with new formats: AR and VR, 360 video, creating of interactive installations and mapping. Also, the program is supposed to include the study of basic principles of sound engineering, sound recording sound synthesis and FMOD/WWSIE implementation.
In this course you are going to master the skills of recording various musical instruments in the studio and in the field. You will learn not only to arrange the microphones properly and to set the sound-recording equipment to achieve the desired result, but also to master and mix the acquired recordings.
The goal of this course is to help the students acquire a taste for music which will be quite hard to overlook, and also to refine the essential technical skills, with the possession of which you will be able to focus on your creative process. The course includes classes on working with DAW, musical content, as well as classes on producing, sound engineering and sound design.
What basic skills
does a student get?
This is one of the first steps of working with the sound - whether it's recording of a performer, some noises, sound effects or a musical instrument. Comprehension of the recording principles will help you receive some decent source material even in the early stages of working with the sound.
Editing / design
Using the principle of multi-layering you can seamlessly combine sound textures to implement your ideas.
You are going to learn to edit speech, synchronous noises, atmospheres and work on your skills in the field of sound design.
Mixing / mastering / implementing
Keeping the balance right among all of the sound layers is what makes the track deep, solid and clear - with the retention of distinctiveness and details. You are going to learn to work with surround sound, spectral and musical balance.
Having received basic experience working in the industry you will be able to choose a sound-related profession: sound supervisor, sound designer, noise-synchronization expert, dubbing sound designer.
