Advanced Projects in Sound Practices (MSR4155.02)

Senem Pirler

In this course, students will work towards completing either one piece or the body of their work in sound practices. These projects can vary, including but are not limited to: sound compositions, music productions (mixes, recordings, and arrangement), e-music pieces, sound design for moving images or theater or video games & VR, online performance ideas and setups, and radio and transmission art pieces. Emphasis will be on portfolio making, depth of approach to content, the refinement of the process, and in-class peer critical review. During this course, there will be exercises (individually or as a group) towards completion and advancing students’ projects. This course will be taught in a remote setting with synchronous and asynchronous components.  This class will collaborate with B-rad (Bennington College’s radio station) to air students’ pieces.
