Practice of Everyday Listening
Examines a variety of conceptual approaches to the role of sound in our everyday environments. Develops critical listening skills through soundwalks, readings and other "ear cleaning" exercises. Discussed strategies and techniques will be drawn from texts including R. Murray Schafer's "acoustic ecology" philosophy, and then applied to the students' projects. Class is both a theory and practice class, and as such there will be readings assigned and workshop-style production sessions. Assumed background: Sound I and/or healthy experience working with sound tools and processes. Non-SMFA students and MAT Art Education students will receive a letter grade.
