Who is this course suitable for?
This course is suitable for anyone who has completed Field Recording and the Soundscape or those who possess reasonable experience with making field recordings and have an understanding of the introductory concepts around the soundscape.
Aims of the course
To impart new and critical awareness around listening, recording, and composing with soundscapes. To develop students’ technical knowledge so creative aims can be more fully realised. To assist in the development of students’ creative sound practice.
Students will gain theoretical, practical and conceptual knowledge in phonography and soundscape composition that can be used in an aesthetic, documentary or political context. These skills can be transferred broadly across Sound Art practice and fine art. They can be used in radio or film and applied to location recording for films or post-production sound. These skills can be used in documenting oral histories, building sound libraries, creating sound walks and more.
