SpTp: Sound Design

This course investigates the use of sound as an element of theatrical design, understanding how technical knowledge and artistic vision combine in this medium. Technically, we will familiarize ourselves with topics including sound system design, recording, mixing, custom creation of sound effects, and we will learn techniques for problem solving in unexpected situations. Artistically, we will explore connections between aural and visual design, discuss sound as space and architecture, and engage with sound as an exploration of aesthetics and style.
