Description

Through Ear Cleaning (R. Murray Schafer) and soundscape composition, this workshop will look at music as a social interaction between students and their environment. It will focus on the benefits of process as it relates to personal creativity within a group and/or community. Composition borne of various musical traditions is often product driven, asking all students to create similar works as opposed to allowing them to individually decide what sounds good and what might not. Composition that begins with local soundscapes gives students the opportunity to listen creatively and decide what they would like to include, exclude, or change. This workshop explores classroom possibilities of the creative and ethical space between music and noise.
