CLUB FOR 1

Monday, March 8th

6pm - 7pm EST

Sliding scale $5 - $15

Via Toll-Free Number

(US & International)

Welcome to Club for 1: an anonymous, participatory telephone hotline dedicated to the exercising and expansion of the human voice and body led by artist Becca Kauffman.

Drawing from the foundational teachings of composer Kay Gardner, we will identify the way different combinations of vowels and consonants produce resonance and vibration throughout the body. We’ll pay special attention to our breath, the soft palate, placement of the tongue, and the power of the hum.

We’ll put our newfound awareness into a collectively read aloud text, building from a round robin recitation into musicalized, embodied interpretations inspired by an ambient soundtrack.

A complimentary music mix will be gifted to all participants.

See you at Club for 1.

Participants will receive an email 30 minutes before the start of the event with the toll-free number (US & International).

IMMERSIVE SOUND DESIGN

FOR VIRTUAL WORLDS

Tuesdays, March 2nd, 9th, and 16th

6pm - 8pm EST

Sliding scale $60 - $80

Via Zoom

In partnership with the Computer Music Center at Columbia University

This three-part workshop will explore how to build adaptive, sonic environments for virtual worlds. Participants will experiment with spatial audio composition, real-time audio processing, implementation, and play-testing. Led by sound artist Deirdre Morrison, they will provide an overview and setup of Unity3D, FMOD, and Ableton Live.

 

We will chop, loop, and process sound files to create an immersive soundscape that reacts to our 3D environment. In FMOD, we will experiment with spatial parameters and trigger behaviors to position our audio throughout the scene and add probability and chance to our sound files. Using Ableton Live, we will experiment with audio processing and manipulation to create additional sound effects and ambiences.

 

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have created a 3D environment that implements adaptive, spatial audio in real-time.

 

This course is suitable for beginners with some basic knowledge of audio editing.

 

Capacity: 16
