As part of the Room Tone Festival (mid-April), students will work on projects that explore the juncture of sound and space, listening and location. In this workshop, students will develop a location-specific toolkit with sound artist Michelle Nagai ’97. As a group, we will examine daily practices of observation, recording, and research. The end goal can be an installation, collaboration, or the chronicling of a daily practice, though students will be asked to share their work at the festival in late April. Students will be expected to do background readings, develop a wiki for communication and documentation, and collaborate with other students and artists. Students are expected to have previous work in sonic mediums and/or related arts.
This course will be offered the first seven weeks of the term.
