Description

Since Susan Phillipz won the Turner Prize in 2010, for a work rendered only in sound, the use of sound by artists has expanded. A gallery that doesn’t consider sound installation in 2016 is rare. And yet many artists are tentative about working in sound. This one day course is for and about artists or practitioners thinking about taking their first steps in sound design for installation or gallery.  Starting with listening, you will begin to think about how you might realise a work in sound. You will start to understand the skills that are needed to cultivate work in sound, or how to apply your own talents to sound design, a rapidly growing form of expression. 

Topics Covered
  • The three processes of sound creation
  • The four corners of the sound work
  • Recording sound 
  • Editing sound, an introduction to Digital Audio Workstations.
  • Outputting sound 
  • The language of sound – an introduction
Course Outcomes
You will have developed an awareness of the technical processes involved with creating sound for galleries and installation. Understand how the elements of the “sound work” and the process of creating sound intersect. Understand the equipment and software available to start creating a work in sound. And leave with your own simple “sound work” that you are able to discuss.

Who Should Attend
