About


Game Sound Design
Hi I am a sound designer and composer : ) Beats Away is my artist name. You can call me Ken. I’ve worked in the game industry for more than five years. I have designed sound effects for many games and game trailers. I can create audio assets on your demand of specific needs of your game projects. I can also propose on when, where and how certain sound events could be triggered. We can work back and forth together as a team to polish the outcome. Good news is if you are handling your game sound events with fmod or wwise, we can speed up our project since I can quickly bounced the sound-bank from fmod/wwise for your team to drag and drop into the game engine to update all sound events in one go.

Voice Over Production
I had recruited and directed voice talents to record multilingual in-game voice overs for many games. I am also a mix engineer which means I can post edit the vocal material, or mix a multi tracked music piece to professional quality.

Video Editing
I have hands on experience using premier to composite game trailers by capturing gameplay footages and animating provided static art assets. I am also familiar with other video editing software such as Final Cut Pro and Da Vinci resolve. Besides, I know how to effectively make visual effects sync with provided audio material by using various softwares such as MaxMSP, unity and magic music visual.

Music Production
I am experienced in composing and producing music for various projects, including games, trailers and films etc.
