Seeing Music | Hearing Images

Noisegate-Soundcool Workshop 2019

June 16 and 23, 2019

Seeing Music | Hearing Images is a two-day educational workshop program for our youth as part of the 2019 ICMC conference. This educational program focuses on participatory and collaborative ways to create art, utilizing sound, music, images, and videos. In its second iteration after its launch last year in Daegu, South Korea, the focus will be on Governors Island as a source for inspiration. This year, the ICMC is partnering with Soundcool (Prof. Jorge Sastre and Prof. Nuria Lloret, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain), Harvestworks’ NYEAF, and Noisegate where we will continue to focus on urban landscapes and soundscapes as part of the ICMC Soundscape Heritage program.

Workshop Program Summary
The program includes recording and working with sound, videos, music, images with particular focus on topics of soundscape heritage and preservation.
