IGAME 3750 Sound Sculpture and Installation

This studio course will explore the medium of sound in relationship to sculpture and installation, focusing on the fusion of audio with sculptural media, environments, and immersive spaces. A range of ideas and materials will be examined to apprise students of historic and contemporary trends in sound and sculpture installation. The course will cover various conceptual and practical methods and approaches to producing sound and sculpture projects. Topics explored include sculptural sound-objects and experimental instruments, site-specificity, narrative environments, multi-channel playback systems for recorded sound, interactivity and performative spaces, and sensor control for real-time processes. Students may produce both individual and group projects.
