1/23, 1/24, 1/25, 1/26 Mon-Thurs 6-7:30 PM EST

Maximum Enrollment: 12 LBS

Course Description



How do you capture the essence of a river? A mirror? A room? How many ways can you listen to a space? How does rhythm alter time? What lies in the sounds and silences behind a story?

This course will push participants to expand how they think about sound as a medium, exploring the range of possible creative practices beyond and within storytelling. From the listening practices of field recordists to the cataloging habits of radio artists, we’ll examine a wide variety of approaches to sound as an artistic medium. Each session focuses on a different theme (place, time, water, mirror) and aspect of the creative process (listening, remembering, constructing) and couples a series of in-class activities and in-depth discussions of artistic practices to help students build an intimacy with sound as a medium for expression.
