DescriptionSince the beginning of the last century (futurism, avant-garde, modernism), sound has become an indivisible part of art. Thanks to today’s digital culture we now encounter sound through the lens of a variety of artistic categories. Contemporary art works with various forms of media, commenting on the current socio-political state while bringing attention to its problems, uncovering taboos, and breaking down stereotypes. In this course, we will try out the principles of experimental art from the 1960’s up until today, examining such categories such as sound art, field recordings, environmental art, documentation, performance, sound intervention, installation, live coding and video. Students will be confronted with artistic practice while getting to know the theory of contemporary sonic art from curators, attending exhibitions, and participating in an end of course collective exhibition.
This course hybrid theory, history and practical practices, It is not only open the horizon of sonic/contemporary art to the participants; but also provide the particle experience such as using the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) for making sonic art, field recording, sound walk, critical thinking, aesthetic, miking, basic music production and compositional techniques. Moreover, this course is student-centred and kinaesthetic learning. In other words, students will learn by doing what they are interested in, while the lecturers will assist and guide them to complete the final assignment. The course is led by two contemporary artists Daniel Vlček and Barry Wan.
