Sound has a special relationship to emotion, instinct, and memory, both individual and collective. Tapping into an ancient area of our brain, sound provides immediate information telling us where we are, if it is safe, and how we should feel about that.

This three-day intensive and immersive workshop, with lead instructor Zach Poff, will have its participants considering the path from listening, to recording, to designing sound for various project forms. Covering topics and techniques from listening to Deep Listening, soundwalks and sound recording in the field, the relationship between the soundscape and sound design, and what is carried and created on the path from recording and recordings, to sound art, performance, and design.

Guest instructors include:

Bonnie Jones

Benjamin Tausig

Jacob Kirkegaard

Monteith McCollum

Andrea Williams
