The Art of Noise unit will engage a studio-based approach to the production of sound art works. The emphasis will be on the production of sound objects, sound sculpture, sound installation, performance and new ways of working with sound. The unit will begin with the physicality of sound and music physics as a starting point, listening to sonic phenomena, materials, forms and existing sound works. This unit will be conducted across various studios in an open studio framework working within a variety of workshops, sound studios and digital labs.
The Art of Noise works with experimental sound under the broadest terms, as sound crosses barriers through physical and cultural space. This unit explores the potential of new sonic sculptures, instruments and installations that cover a plethora of approaches to sound. This open studio investigates sound as a force in the world.
