Major Conference: Space, Sound, and the Moving Image

Professor

Leah Gilliam

Schedule

Mon 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm HDR 106

Space, Sound, and the Moving Image is intended to refine students' video production skills and give students a better understanding of installation as a medium for artistic expression. Participants in this course will use video (as well as other materials and media) to design and build real environments that are meant to be experienced spatially. We will pay particular attention to using sound and light to transform existing spaces into site-specific installations. We will also attempt to use video monitors, projections, closed-circuit systems and surveillance equipment in innovative ways, and consider how to design spaces using time-based media and interactive elements.

Notes not Necessary: Exploring Other Ways to Make Music

Professor

Brenda Hutchinson

Schedule

Mon Th 4:30 pm - 5:50 pm BLM EMS

Cross-listed: Integrated Arts

This is an applied class in experimental music and is recommended for students from any discipline. We will examine the works of contemporary composers working in a variety of styles and sound media, and assignments will be based on the models we study in class. We will discuss new conceptual models for form, content, and ways to work with sounds, the environment, and our own perceptions to create music. Students will be expected to discuss and present their own work in class and assist and support each other through performances of assignments; formulate questions; read, discuss, and write in response to selected writings; composer pieces performable in class; and keep a journal of their impressions and criticism.

Collaborating with Strangers: Individuals, Communities, and Institutions

Professor

Brenda Hutchinson

Schedule

Tu 4:30 pm - 6:50 pm BLM EMS

Cross-listed: Integrated Arts

This course addresses making art in the public arena, focusing on collaborating with strangers (as opposed to work generated within a studio). We will examine the work of visual and audio artists who create public art projects and installations, as well as those who work within existing communities or communities created specifically for the immediate piece. Students will use trading, mapping, interviewing, and collecting strategies adopted from a variety of methods including anthropology, private investigation, and street performance. The result of students work will be presented on the street, in the community, and as proposals in class. This is an interdisciplinary course appropriate for performers, composers, dancers, sculptors, painters, and multimedia artists and for those who would like to take more risks in their work.
