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.
