We design and lead workshops on immersive audio. We’ve run classes with UnionDocs, the radio stations WFYI and KUOW, the University of Virginia, NYU and Monson Arts.
What does it mean to be immersed in an audio story? Our intensive workshops explore new ways of defining and creating immersive storytelling through technology, events, editing, sound design, and reporting techniques.
Classes cover: creating site-specific audio such as soundwalks and installations; analog techniques for virtual reality and augmented reality; putting on a successful event; binaural recording and sound design; and creating media that engages the other senses to tell a story. We also instruct on how, as an outsider journalist, to make respectful and deep connections in communities that aren’t one’s own.
We teach through a combination of lecture, hands-on exercises, discussion and workshopping.
