Exploring and Creating Sonic Environments

Sound is all around us. The way we perceive or experience these sounds are largely dependent upon their environments, whether artificially constructed or naturally present. In this studio-based course, students will learn about the development of sound art through readings and listenings by artists, musicians and designers who investigate our sonic environment through field recordings, sound sculptures, multi-channel immersive installations, soundscapes, audio tours and podcasts.
