Sculpting in Sound
Workshop facilitated by Joe Namy
18-19 October 2023 | 11 AM – 4 PM

This workshop focuses on the practical aspects of sound design and sound sculpting. Participants will explore the practices of capturing, filtering, and collaging sound to create new meanings and new ways of listening.

Artists interested in practicing the art of sound sculpting and in exploring sound as a medium are encouraged to apply. No previous experience in working with sound or music is required.

The workshop is in English.
