SOUND ART & SOCIAL HISTORY
Dates: 8pm Tuesdays 19th Jan - 9th Feb
Sound Art & Social History is a series of four, one hour workshops. The sessions will give an introduction to sound art and its potential to investigate and present social history. Through listening, discussion and practical tasks over Zoom, the participants will explore the medium in an interactive and accessible way.
There will be an emphasis on exploring the use of field recordings and interviews in sound art and soundscape composition. Participants will be encouraged to make recordings on their phones and explore the sound in their own surroundings.
