Engine Room: Taster Sessions
May 2, 2017 @ 12:00 am - May 26, 2017 @ 12:00 am
We are running two free taster sessions alongside The Engine Room exhibition to give you a taste of Sound Art and Soundscape Composition.
18 May: Sound Art Taster Session: A taster for those interested in the use of sound to create experimental sonic artworks. Increasingly sound is used by artists as a tool for exploring new meanings, experiences and messages. In this taster you will explore the potential of sound as ‘art’ through examples from contemporary arts practice before designing and producing your own miniature sonic artwork.
25 May: Soundscape Composition Taster Session: Think about listening and sound in a whole new way. Learn how the sound of your surroundings can become musical compositions. This taster will introduce you to new ways of listening and thinking about sound. Through practical activities you’ll develop an understanding of the ways in which sound shapes our understanding of different environments, from everyday urban commotion to nature’s aural secrets. Learn how artists are using recordings of sound from all manner of environments to create new experiences for listeners.
