So this wee journey with sound began rather a few weeks ago now along with the beginning of Semester .
As is somewhat typical of my practice I have been enthralled and engaged by this journey ,yet have some how failed to document this process in a consecutive/sequential pattern . I shall now attempt to gather my notes and wits about me as I present a diatribe on the experience.
This sound investigation stems from the Emerging Practices Paper I am engaged in as an elective . Led by Clinton Watkins, Prolific Auckland Sound Artist , it aims to explore the complex / wondrous field of creative practice which is emerging around Sound. Whilst also equipping us newbies with some fundamental recording /editing and mastering skill sets.
The Process essentially covers four mini projects :
Project 1 – Sound recording
Project 2 – Sound editing & manipulation
Project 3 – Sound composing & mixing
Project 4 – Sound mastering and output
We have lived in the vain hope that by the end of the course we may produce something vaguely as polished as some of these pieces…
