Adv Prac: Sonic Remnants

Fall 2022

Taught By: LeAndra LeSeur

Section: A

CRN: 9636

Credits: 3

How does sound shape vision? How do deep listening experiences shape us? This course will explore how sound interacts with and accompanies visual forms to create sonic remnants. Its goal is to help students gain a deep understanding of the way that sound has historically aided how we think and process meaning and thus how experimentation with abstraction of sound has challenged the way we perceive visual forms. This course pushes beyond the general understanding of what sound acts as and instead activates a new language around what sound is - one that defines sound as rhythm, oration, gesture, and even silence. The class will introduce different forms of sonic activations through the initial study of various musical genres and visual artists who have worked directly and indirectly with sound as a form of expression. Students will dissect different rhythms and gain appreciation for the ways sound can be present with us and around us, allowing for experimentation with their own creation of a sonic piece.

Credits: 3

In this class, students will be equipped with the technical and artistic tools to conceptualize and produce their video works. Students will learn methodologies of how to translate and incorporate a wide range of artistic disciplines, on-line media, and performance within a video work. The class will give students technical instruction in Premiere Pro (editing software) and Garage Band (Audio software). We will also examine different strategies and technical details for the presentation of video in a fine arts context, form single channel projections, to multi-channel installations and video-sculptures. The main focus of the class is the creation and critique of work made by the students. The class will also be engaged in the study of contemporary practices of video art through screening and discussing works by artists such as Stanya Kahn, Sondra Perry, Jacolby Satterwhite, William Kentridge, Candice Breitz, Lisa Reihana, and many others.
