1. A workshop in recording and composition with field recordings conducted by Maile Colbert and Rui Costa through Binaural/Nodar. In our hyper-visual modern world, where we are bombarded with constant visual media…television, advertisements, etc…we have forgotten how to listen. Students will be guided to “re-tune” their ears to actively pay attention to the rich aural world around them, to listen actively and imaginatively, and not just passively hear. They will then use their ears, creativity, and new set of tools to create an audio composition using the world around them as instrument.

    There is a point when a conversation takes on a path and direction of it’s own. When there is a sense that it is a separate entity from its human origins, and those sharing in it have the sense of being guided rather then being the ones in control. The same thing can happen with an art project.
    This project interprets with various artistic disciplines and media the struggles and adaptations when communication breaks down...whether through language barrier, or through network devices such as chat. How do we work to express and be understood when we have different language and cultural cues...how do we work to express and be understood when the symbols of written language are out only information, and non-verbal cues such as expression and gesture are taken away.

    Production: Granular and Opensound

    A decal is a shadow of its former context, an object on its own, a trace of its former self. "Open Decallation" as well refers to recall and recollection. Its main sources are various text chats and messages composed between members of the Opensound group during the production process. Run like a salon to promote discussion in the midst of experiencing the audio/visual aspects of the work, "Open Decallation" acts as a living catalog of an event and its production. A special thank you for Granular and the fine folk at Opensound.
