From June 22-29 this summer the TIMARA Department will host its annual Sonic Arts Workshop (SAW). Dedicated to high school students ages 15 years and older, the program provides great exposure to the world of electroacoustic music and offers a variety of technical and creative resources. Topics will include field recording, real time techniques, audio processing, and discussion of electronic music repertoire. The program is great for students headed towards conservatory studies, as well as those simply interested in experimenting with electronic and computer music. More information, including the application, is avaliable here.
When I attended as a high-school student the program provided gave me a direction and a passion. I couldn’t recommend anything else if you are interested in exploring sound as a medium of creation. – WJ
