Sound workshop

🎶👯SOUND WORKSHOP: Collaborative Composing with Any Sound Source 👯🎵

In this workshop we will do together a collaborative composition. Participants can bring any object, an instrument or for example their favourite audio files to the workshop. Using whatever objects/sounds we have we’ll discuss, record and modify sound.

The participants will also learn how to listen to the acoustical properties of different objects and what kind of sounds and manipulation of sound is possible. We will also learn how to perform and record a musical improvisation with different objects, as well as basics of a Digital Audio Workstation use, and how to make the composition sound musically good and coherent.

🔊You don’t need any previous experience working with audio❗️An open mind and curiosity towards sounds, music and listening is a plus.

🏫 Location: Väre (O102)
🕔 When: 23 Nov from 18:00→ until you want to go home

Flux Island 2022

FLUX ISLAND II
Date: September 15.09-8.10.2022
Location: Vuotalo, Mosaiikkitori 2, 00980 Helsinki

A direct translation of the word ‘Vuosaari’, Flux Island combines the figurative and literal. Flux as in flow of people, ideas, electricity, water, etc. and flux as in the substance used when soldering. Flux Island is a collaboration between Vuotalo, Aalto Media Lab, Ääniaalto and culminating in an exhibition, workshops, and audiovisual performances.

The theme for this year is “ECHO-systems”, to be understood as reflection of energies and pulses in an environment. Delays, different densities, changes in temperature and pressure might create illusions of ECHO-systems. Depending on the assemblages we make, we can enable interaction between each of these parts. How can we create ECHO-systems that highlight communication? How can different ECHO-systems function together enhancing sustainability? The theme could be freely shaped according to the participant’s own vision, inviting audiences to individually explore and create their own narrative hidden in these ECHO-systems.

Flux Island is happening in conjunction with the seventh edition of audiovisual festival ÄÄNIAALTO which will take place at Vuosari on September 2–3 and September 23–24 at Vapaan taiteen tila.
