About the Course

Invent, create, play! This course will allow you to explore sound as an art form using instruments, found objects, voice, recordings and technology. The emphasis will be on exploration and experimentation. You will also learn about the history, key artists and movements associated with sound as an art form. Each term focuses on a different aspect, leading to an individual project and the opportunity to take part in a public event or exhibition.

Who is this course for
This course is open to people with any level of knowledge and experience. An interest in sound, experimental music, performance or contemporary art would be useful. Previous musical experience is not required, but neither is it a disadvantage.

What does this course cover
This is a practical course on which you will explore a range of skills and techniques. You will learn about important sound artists and experimental musicians, and their influence and methods. The course explores ways of listening to, appreciating and analysing experimental music and sound art. You will review and critique your own work to develop your Sound Art practice.
