Sounds of Venba
This panel will showcase how and why certain sounds and musical cues were used in order to recreate a bustling, evolving Tamil immigrant home in Canada through 3 decades. The goal was to reflect an immigrant family’s roots and the nostalgia that they hold so dear while they navigate the immigrant experience. The process of creating certain sound effects and the conceptual basis for Venba’s soundtrack will be explored in depth.
