Over four intensive sessions we will discuss the creative process of designing sound for plays and will look at the hardware and software tools used to express these designs. In the first two classes students will be introduced to the recording, editing and mixing techniques used in preparing music and sounds for theatrical productions. In the second weekend we will look at basic theatrical sound playback and reinforcement systems and examine how we approach programming our recorded sources for use in dramatic productions. After the introductory session, members of the class will have access to the Greenwall sound design studio for their projects throughout the term.
This course will meet on over three weekends. Saturday, March 1, 2:00 – 6:00pm and Sunday, March 2, 12:00 – 3:00pm and Sunday, March 9, 1:00 – 5:00pm and Sunday, March 16, 1:00 – 4:00pm.
