Canal Convergence: Site-Responsive Sonic Art with Lauren Sarah Hayes
Each year the City of Scottsdale hosts an event called Canal Convergence at the start of November, that combines technology with public art and innovation. This year several of AME faculty and students will be presenting at the event.
Site-Responsive Sonic Art with Lauren Sarah Hayes
About the Event
Take part in a collaborative sound installation! In this workshop, you will use portable microcomputer technologies (microphones, portable speakers, code, loops) to explore relationships between people, sounds and spaces. You’ll learn about musical and technical approaches to artistically respond to a place and will develop an on-site installation in which each participant‘s work becomes part of a larger, emergent sonic structure. No experience necessary.
