Imagine a sonic journey through the wonderful diverse sound cultures of Kirklees. A sound tapestry, mapping the texture of our soundscape.
That’s the promise of a new project workshop taking place this march as part of Cultures of Sound and the Kirklees Year of Music 2023.
The ‘Building Cultures of Sound’ project weaves attendees’ sound memories and experiences together with the guidance of sonic artist and educator Mia Windsor as she guides them through a process of listening, recording and composing an original surround sound immersive piece.
Across three afternoon workshops, attendees will learn techniques for really listening to sound, how to do basic audio recording, and how to compose a soundscape using audio software.
No Experience Needed
No prior experience is needed, as Cultures of Sound are more interested in experiences and ideas than technical proficiency, but they hope participants will learn skills that will aid future creativity with sound.
Workshops will take place from 1.30 pm – 4 pm on Sunday, March 5th, 12th and 19th.
The project will culminate in a final composition to be played as a sound installation as part of the Cultures of Sound festival. The piece will be playing during the second half of May.
There will be 20 places (for adults 16+) and it will be delivered in the University of Huddersfield’s music department.
The workshop is free to attend, and tickets are available online via Eventbrite.
