Sound Composition for Moving Image

Recurring event see all

August 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

This workshop will explore the role and function of sound composition in regards to moving images. We will experiment and explore various ways sound and images interact with one another. Students will learn music and sound composition techniques that will aid in their video production or collaboration, whether they’re working with narrative storytelling, documentary film, or experimental short videos. We will cover the fundamentals and search for new ways of approaching sound composition for moving images. This course is ideal for musicians or filmmakers looking to gain new sound ideas and compositional techniques for scoring their first piece.

Prerequisite: Basic understanding of sound recording and mixing.
