Radio and audio are forms mostly associated with doing rather than critiquing, but what makes great sound work extraordinary is exactly the same as what makes great novels, plays, dances, songs, symphonies or paintings resonate across time. It's the coming together of a unique imaginative concept--by individual artists or teams of creators--with a technical structure and craft that transforms it. In this course, we'll listen to some classic and contemporary radio/audio master works, by producers such as Jad Abumrad, Jonathan Mitchell, and Kaitlin Prest, unpack them, research their histories; hear from their creators, and develop a critical vocabulary and taxonomy for the form. And then, we’ll make our own masterwork. The class will propose and investigate possible subjects, and then, working in teams, will realize a production that will be produced by the class and featured on WNSR, New School Radio. [Track M]
