This course deals with the concept of SOUNDSCAPE and the practices of SOUND ART. Soundscape is a mental tool to listen to and to understand our environment; it is also an engaging dialogue with our “Umwelt.” Sound art is an array of actions and interventions to enhance and distort our perception of sounds.
This course includes,
- Presentations of researches and artwork dealing with these topics. Video documentation, attentive listening, explanation of the background of the artists and discussion about the aesthetic questions that they raise.
- Practical processes. The students are asked to develop some basic elements of the practices. They'll need to use their creativity and their sensitivity to produce some experiences which will be shared and discussed.
- Collective creation based on personal research. Each student is invited to collaborate in small working groups, exploring some chosen soundscapes in the Taipei basin.
