Everybody sings when they are young, and many play a musical
instrument. By university, however, social pressures and career
preparations take us away from the tactile joys of creating sound.
While we continue to enjoy music as adults, the practice of
‘musicking’ is assumed to be for professional musicians. The aim of
this SMArt Masterclass is to gather a community of students to
create original sound works with basis and inspiration from science
and engineering concepts. As with the sciences, musical ideas and
creativity comes about through process and experimentation.
Students will receive an overview of concept-based experimental
music with visual scores. After interacting with these materials,
students will create their own visual materials in which to create
shared sonic scenarios based upon their scientific practices or a
sonic representation of collected data. The masterclass will
culminate in a large, spatialized sound performance with the
student creating artful sounds with objects found in their labs or
natural environments. This masterclass will be facilitated by Dr.
Nicholas Papador, Associate Professor of Music in the School of
Creative Arts. The environment will be inclusive to those with no
formal musical training or those with experience in any musical
genre. Open to all University of Windsor students.
At this time, there are no upcoming events in "Tune into STEM through Music and Sound".
