This workshop is designed to introduce basic sound design principles to non-designers (choreographers, performers, rehearsal directors, anyone) using examples of chance operations and indeterminacy. Composers Charles Ives, Henry Cowell, and John Cage—and their poetic, artistic, and choreographic parallels—will serve as point of reference for conversation in this class.  We will explore the composition process using the audio tools available in the popular (and free) design / playback software Qlab, including simultaneous sound playback, randomization, looping, time-based triggering, playback manipulation and warping, and other extended features of the program. Participants will learn new methods of subverting their natural musical and choreographic tendencies while familiarizing themselves with the sound design process and demystifying its technology.  This process can be applied to live choreography or dance on film.

Requirements:

No sound design or computer literacy is prerequisite, but participants must have a (somewhat recent) Mac laptop to participate, and be somewhat familiar with its interface. Participants should also bring headphones and a folder of sounds or music to use during the workshop.

$5 for Dance Films members and Gibney class card holders; $15 for general public
