Introduction to experimental music and sound art

Summer School Jan/Feb in AK - a practical and theoretical introduction to experimental music and sound art

The Audio Foundation with the generous support of AUT presents a practical and theoretical introduction to experimental music and sound art:

This workshop aims to provide a hands-on practical and theoretical framework to contextualize the practice of experimental music and sound art in contemporary sound culture. Students will be introduced to processes and technology of generating, recording and manipulating sound and will be encouraged to present their sound work in progress over the duration of the workshop. Over the three weeks, students will receive an introduction to the history, key individuals (New Zealand/international) and methodology of this practice. Content will include a rich range of listening material, readings, lectures, practical sound exercises and discussion.
