Katie Tarrant is a sound designer and musician at Rare Ltd in Twycross. Having started as a bright-eyed audio intern, Katie has proved herself enough to stick around with the audio team building the soundscape of Sea of Thieves. In 2016, Katie was the first ever recipient of UK Music's 'Outstanding Contribution to Music' award, and also received King and Diversi's scholarship to attend GDC in 2017. In 2018, she was named as one of GameIndustry.Biz's Top 100 Rising Stars in the industry. Alongside sound design and music, Katie writes for the game audio website 'The Sound Architect'.
Sea Of Thieves’ Audio Director, Jon Vincent, discusses the value of sound designers taking much more tech control and going deeper into creating complex replay systems for themselves, citing examples of his own audio team’s voyages into scripting and logic control, as well as his personal code learning experiences. Katie Tarrant will join him to show some of the practical outcomes arising from these initiatives, demonstrating some key audio systems from their latest piratical project which show just what hidden treasure awaits the technically adventurous sound designer.
