Methodology

Create dynamic sonic experiences while rising above conventions.

Eiravaein Works LLC is a sound design and audio development company driven by both creative path-forging and a deep meditation on all things auditory.

Concerning any project we have the pleasure of working on, we take into account both the direct and indirect audiences, the payload on the perceptual pathways of the auditory and other sensory systems, conceptual relationships with the stimuli, and the intended semiotic effect that is or can be drawn from each sound source.  Whether the project calls for composition or arrangement, field recording, synthetic design, implementation, or any blend of soundsmithing therein, we stay true to these methodological convictions.

If Eiravaein Works had a middle name, it would be Custom.  The way we see it, the conceptual foundation of "custom" is a way of life.  True, by the nature of what we do, custom work is quintessential to our workflow and design process.  Yet, from the start of any design to well beyond its completion, we stay consistently mindful of the ways of traditional crafts folk and how they used their strengths, dexterity, and intuition to create unique items and experiences for their customers.  There is a special factor to having something custom made and we keep that "hand-wrought" philosophy core to our specialty.  Custom makes it personal, it adds a story.  It forges the human element straight into the heart of the work with which it is connected.

    At the heart of the operation, is Kyle Raub.  His initiative and endeavor arises from having spent years working, studying, and traveling over the globe to gain new perspectives on sound, soundscapes, cognition, human communication, and sensory perception.  With a background in cognitive science, semiotics, international relations, and audio engineering, his approach to sound design and auditory development is diverse and unique.  He strives to capture and create sounds that are rich in meaning and off the well-worn path.

    We may do things a bit differently around here, but that is just because we don't know any other way to do them.

     

     

     

    Re-Ups, free for life

    With any of our audio products, once you've invested in one we will always keep you updated with any improvements or additions we make.  While new customers will pay appropriately for products that have grown, you will get any and all "re-ups" (refreshers, updates, or upgrades) absolutely free of charge.
