Meet the Team – Antoine Van Lierde

Name: Antoine Van Lierde

Role: Sound Designer

About: All-around audio guy from Belgium. I do sound effects, music, mixing, mastering and in-game implementation. I started recording music when I was a teenager and then studied audio production at SAE London. While finishing my degree I learnt basic coding to build a musical controller. This project led me to work in different fields and I continued composing on the side. About a year before I discovered GalaCollider, I decided to start doing what I love full-time. I was a finalist in the Montreal international film scoring competition (2016), I created music for fashion videos and I learnt interactive scoring for games with Berklee online. I love having both creative and technical processes in my everyday life and game audio gives me just the right balance. I love all music that I feel expresses authentic emotion, and my favorite game is Hyper Light Drifter. I’m also currently working as sound designer and composer on a story-driven psychologic horror game called The Breaker.

What’s your favorite thing about GalaCollider?

What makes it special to me is a combination of different things. The hybrid genre. Playing cards to make things spawn in space. The resources system. The epic destiny of different species in galaxies that are on a collision course.

What inspires you?

Imaginary worlds, artworks, stories, characters, locations, and the symbolic meaning they carry which can be expressed through sound and music.

What is your current gaming obsession?

Nier Automata. I love the experience, the story and how it unfolds.
