WORKSHOP EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES IN SOUND DESIGN

 

Based on the sound's plasticity and the analysis of several sound parameters, the participants will be introduced to the technique of granular synthesis, through the use of various tools in terms of software and hardware. The aim will be to familiarize participants with concepts, techniques and tools that allow them to approach sound design and sound design in an experimental, abstract and emotional way.

 

Part I - Concepts and examples

. Sound as plastic

. Illustration / opposition / abstraction

. Emotion: texture, harmony, silence

. Main parameters: pitch, tempo ...

. Introduction to granular synthesis

 

Part II - Tools

. Sound capture

. Sound Banks

. Hardware / software / apps

 

Part III - Free practice

. Experimenting with the tools

 

Part IV - Exercise proposal

. Emotive sound
