What is sound art? It’s simply art made with sound! Because of sound’s immaterality, sound art is often interdisciplinary and includes 2D art, sculpture, performance, and digital media. In this sound art workshop, artists will be encouraged to cultivate their own voices through guided independent and group projects. Each week we will dive into a new topic within the lens of a particular sound art practice, for example sound drawing, field recordings, instrument building, synthesizers and sound visualization video. The instructor will demonstrate a technique and students will interpret it their own way, coming away with their own unique artworks, compositions and videos. No prior experience necessary!
