ESTRANGING THE FAMILIAR
EXPERIMENTAL CONSTRAINTS IN SOUND AND TEXT
Tuesday, November 17
6pm - 8pm EST
Sliding Scale $10 - $25
Zoom video link will be sent out 15 minutes prior to event
In this workshop, we'll look at sound as text and text as sound. Exploring embodied and theoretical motivations in sound and text creation, we'll experiment with constraints like visual scoring, imitation, and hocketing.
Artist Jacqui Cornetta will share how theories and practices of translation can offer a deeper engagement with the constant dialogue between our work and its collective swirl of influences.
Bring a notebook and a piece (sound, text, film, object, image, etc.) that you admire.
