Join us at Oona for an exploration of different sound materials. Applications are open and the workshop is free to attend.

On Monday, 30 January, you can attend a 90-minute workshop hosted by sound artist Debashis Sinha, an artist who has composed for dance, video, film and theatre alongside numerous solo and collaborative projects. Debashis' speculative mythology-driven sound practice has led to live appearances at events and venues such as MUTEK Japan, the Guelph Jazz Festival, and Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

In this workshop, participants will explore field recording and radiophonic art, collectively building the foundations for new sound mythologies. Using smartphones to gather recordings, participants will be led in a collaborative mixing/editing session to discover the hidden stories within different sound materials.

Debashis, who is currently an assistant professor in production in Performance at The Creative School, Toronto Metropolitan University, will share some possible techniques for dealing with recordings with an ear to craft an open sound story. No special equipment is required other than some kind of recording device. Smartphones and their recording apps work well. If you have other recording gear that you are comfortable with, feel free to bring it along.
