Experimental Sound for Visual Artists and Filmmakers


Project Description

Composer and multimedia artist Philip Mantione has brought together experimental sound artists and composers, Glenn Bach, David Casey and Daniel Eaton to give a series of workshops and performances at RAM centered around the art of sound for visual artists.

The workshops are designed to expose artists to methods and software for creating and incorporating sound in their work, as well as to inspire those with a general interest in sound as art. Topics will include: Open Source Software and Audio Fundamentals, Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Avid Protools and Max/MSP.

The second day of the event will feature performances and screenings by the participating artists including a screening by guest video artist and curator, Alysse Stepanian. There will be a panel discussion following the performances with the artists, moderated by the curator of RAM, Kathryn Poindexter.

In the workshops, participating artists will discuss and demonstrate their use of music software and computer-interactive devices. Each has written created sound for experimental video and film or multimedia installation, and will discuss and their unique approach to using industry standard audio software. Specific applications covered will include Audacity, Protools, Ableton Live, Logic Pro and Max/MSP. The workshops will emphasize a computer-driven experimental perspective as opposed to traditional scoring for instrumentalists, so knowledge of music theory is not required.

All workshops and performances are free and open to the public.
