a6_ostkreuzsstlogokl_web_ger_eng.jpgSound Studies/Acoustic Communication Master’s Program Sound Studies :: Berlin University of the Arts.

Sound studies explore and form the acoustic dimensions of culture by using interdisciplinary methods. While applying a broader scale of theories and practices originating in art, cultural and social sciences, or design, sound studies aim at equally comprehensive and profound investigations of sonic phenomena, which then can be realized in diverse forms: as texts, as interventions, as works of art or as commercial projects. To cover all aspects, Sound Studies / Acoustic Communication at the Berlin University of the Arts are structured in four different fields: anthropology and ecology of sounds, experimental sound art and sound design, digital audio design, and acoustic conceptualization / brand communication.

Surround Sound Master Class [us NYC]

harvestworks.jpgSurround Sound Master Class by Paul Geluso :: December 10 and 17, 2008; 6:30-9:30 pm :: Harvestworks, 596 Broadway #602, NYC.

For many years, artists had to bring their own equipment when they wanted to present multichannel sound works. Even a simple 4-channel (“quad”) installation required you to patch two stereo systems together, and you had to play your material from a computer to make sure the audio is in sync. With the advent of 5.1 Surround Sound, to be distributed on DVD, this changed profoundly. If your artistic project could work within the Surround Sound environment, you could just author a DVD with your surround audio or video piece, and ship it off to the gallery or presentation space to make it work.
