Workshop on Re-Embodied Sound
Featuring Matthew Goodheart and Michael Delia
This workshop will explore the concept of re - embodied sound through hands-on activities using resonanace, sonification, objects, transducers, and some kind of simple sound editing. Installation artists and composers have been working with the notion of re-embodied sound for quite some time. While definitions and uses differ between artists, the central set of ideas involves using an object or musical instrument to generate sound, processing that sound in some way, and then re-sonifiying the original object with the sound altered, often through the use of a special speakers (transducers).
Techniques range from simple feedback loops to complex algorithmically controlled sound installations.Some electronics will be provided: transducers, wires, amplifiers, contact mics.
Participants are encouraged to bring a resonant object they find sonically interesting. Use of a computer with processing software is encouraged, such as Max/MSP, PD, AbletonLive, or similar.
