Join sound artist Sascha Brosamer (visiting from Berlin) and get hands on with the history of mobile sound devices. Explore how listening has changed, from the gramophone listening culture in Parisian parks during the 1920s to the boombox and smartphone 100 years later.
During the workshop we will:
** learn about the simple acoustic technology
** use the Grainfield Application on your smart phone to create an immersive listening experience
** and create simple spatial sound experiments to learn about granular synthesis
Tickets are $30 – get in touch if you need a concession price.
“GrainField“ is a web-based application used to network the audience and create an immersive listening experience. It was designed by Benjamin Matuszewski and Norbert Schnell as part of the CoSiMa research project developed at the IRCAM Center Pompidou Paris.
Sascha Brosamer is an interdisciplinary artist and electronic music composer from Berlin/Germany. He is exploring the archaeology of sound and its projection into the digital future.
