WPM-A Media Art and the Environment
The acoustic ecology of environments is critical to our experience of being present within them, but more often then not, it is ignored. In this class students will learn about acoustic ecology. We will explore and discuss how one listens and perceives the world around us. The course will introduce various modes of listening and field recording techniques (including both stereo and ambisonic sound recording and video). It will encourage the students to think more broadly about sound as material.
Students will also learn about the music of contemporary composers including John Cage and R. Murray Schafer and the various concepts and tools they used in order to create works. Art work that may include field recordings, Max/MSP programming and physical computing will be realized.
