Scopes' sound map
Listening session and sound art workshop
Composing a soundtrack with narration and sound art is an innovative and exciting approach to creating a multimedia experience that engages both the auditory and narrative senses. This concept involves the use of sound effects, music, and spoken word to tell a story and create an immersive and captivating experience for the listener.
The sound composition typically consists of a combination of ambient sounds, music, and sound effects that are carefully selected to convey the tone and mood of the story. These elements are then layered and mixed together to create a cohesive and engaging soundscape that enhances the storytelling experience.
Narration is an essential component of this concept as it provides the audience with a clear and engaging sound line. The narrator's content is carefully chosen to match the tone and mood of the story, and it is usually recorded separately from the other elements of the soundtrack to ensure clarity and consistency.
Sound art is also an integral part of this concept, as it provides a unique and creative way to enhance the storytelling experience. Sound art is the use of sounds and noises that are not traditionally considered musical or melodic, such as ambient noise, field recordings, and manipulated sounds. By incorporating records into the voices, the composer can create an immersive and dynamic soundscape that evokes emotions and enhances the narrative.
In this workshop, we will explore the art of recording ambient sounds from different locations and using them to build a sound map of field records.
This workshop aims to provide participants with the skills and knowledge required to capture the essence of different locations through sound. By the end of the workshop, participants will have developed an understanding of how to record and manipulate sound, and how to use it to create a unique and immersive experience throughout the sound maps.
Throughout the workshop, participants will be encouraged to explore different locations and record the sounds they hear. They will learn how to use various recording equipment to capture different types of sounds and how to edit and manipulate them using digital tools.
In addition to recording sounds, participants will also learn how to analyze and interpret them, using their recordings to create a sound map of the field records. This map will be a visual representation of the different locations and the sounds that were recorded there, creating a unique and immersive experience for the audience.
This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in sound art, whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist. It is a great opportunity to explore the art of sound and develop your skills in recording and manipulating sound. So, come and join us in this exciting workshop and let's create a unique and immersive sound map of our field records!
