2 Day Storytelling Through Sound Course with Gareth Stack.
Aimed at storytellers in all media, from writers to filmmakers. The goal of the course is to start thinking about sound in a new way: As a basic tool of storytelling. The mechanics of a medium, it’s limits and unique capacities, it’s textures and its intrinsic qualities are all key to making the most of it as a creative artist. This course will examine ways of using sound to tell a story – ways of treating sound as a first class citizen in multimedia work. We’ll be listening to some of the best sound design and aural storytelling from radio, sound art and cinema. We’ll explore the various relations to the listener possible through the medium, and what sound can add to other mediums.
This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in sound as a medium, especially artists, filmmakers and radio producers who wish to develop the use of sound in their practice. This is not a technical sound engineering course, but a storytelling course focused on sound as a tool and a medium.
