The course draws on work by key figures in sound art and experimental music, from the beginnings of recorded sound to present day artists. Throughout the course we’ll listen to and discuss some important works, how they were made and their relevance. Practical work will take us outside of the classroom to dig into the sounds of the city, with listening exercises and recording with different types of hardware. The course covers different uses of cityscape recordings; types of augmented field recording from sound installations to performative works; and ends with a session on composing a city-based soundscape.
Online registration is now closed but you can enrol at reception immediately before the course, which starts at 6:30pm.
