Silicate Soundscapes

June 18th - June 22nd
Ben Wright, John Roach |

This cross disciplinary workshop will introduce students to the wide flung acoustical possibilities of glass. We will approach the hot glass studio as an avenue to inflate, cast, and crash glass elements for mixed media noise machines and immersive and interactive multi-sensory, installation, and performance work.  

Students will learn and invent multiple studio techniques and technologies to manipulate both sound and hot glass. Through recombinant approaches to these media, we will discover, record, distort, and project hidden sound potentials and learn how to effectively apply these discoveries to concept based artwork.
