T-PR 70912 - Sound and Space/Aural Awareness
Sound and Space is an experiential and project-based course that develops the student’s awareness of sound in both theatrical and real-world environments. Incorporating online and field listening experiences, students will create projects designed to highlight the use of sound both as its own aesthetic experience and as a technique to tell stories in a vivid and visceral way. Theoretical units will introduce the student to physical parameters of sound (such as frequency, amplitude, and timbre) along with conceptual parameters (such as style, association, and emotional impact). Music will be studied as a special case of sound in general. The course will include some hands-on introduction to sound design and manipulation software (for example, QLab and Audacity) as tools of exploration. Students will study the historical artistic use of sound, including the work of Pauline Oliveros, John Cage, Laurie Anderson, and the artists of the Dada movement. Theatrical productions, films, and classic Warner Bros. cartoons will also be studied for their use of sound and music.
