A Practical Introduction to Soundinstallation
Sound material as a projection surface of technical and cultural ideas
Music has the power to transport immediately emotions and moods to our senses. Installing a sound to a room or to a body has the ability to make the room reactive towards what happens in it respectively to interpretate body movements in a musical way. -- By configuring and programing Arduino-devices the abilities of sound installations are explored. All necessary technical skills and all necessary skills in music and humanities are taught in the course to keep the course open for both: representatives of the human sciences and those of engineering and informatics and by doing so, meeting the demand of interdisciplinarity claimed here.
Students create a sound installation, framed by a descriptive text (10 up to 20 pages) and an oral presentation (5 to 10 minutes), whereas their work should reflect their progress in programing, musical theory and aestetical appreciation gained during this course.
