This is a very open-ended introductory audio production workshop designed to give you the tools to create your own sound art! Learn the skills from a professional sound artist and producer. Here students will explore exercises in deep listening, how to capture sounds (from foundational microphone use to digital audio capture techniques), how to use different audio-based software, and finally discuss ideas for presenting their audio compositions.
