Philip Eriksson started his audio career in live sound and music recording after finishing his education at Lappfjärds folkhögskola in 2009. After working with numerous artists he pursued his studies in film sound at Stockholm Academy of the Arts. He then shifted focus primarily on interactive media with his work on Battlefield Hardline. Now he´s mostly known for his work on various Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield titles as a sound designer at EA DICE in Stockholm, the most recent being Star Wars Battlefront 2.
Focussing on the practical audio design work from conception through prototyping to in-game integration, Philip will reveal how the audio team at DICE developed the sounds of the ‘heroes’ whilst needing to unify the sonics of all Star Wars eras into one holistic soundscape. He will detail examples which show the direction, emotional target, creative design and technical implementation for their sound design.

There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.
Ian Livingstone, CBE
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

Jo Twist, OBE
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
