Join sound artist and sonic adventurer Dan Tapper for an exploration into sound and place. The workshop will focus on delving into the often-overlooked sounds of the world around us through sound walking and field recording exercises. These exercises and recordings will inform the development of unique and bespoke digital systems and performance instruments allowing participants to perform and manipulate real world sounds through psycho geography, maps and interactive interfaces. Participants should expect to have collected a package of sounds, developed new ways of listening and interpreting sound and developed a bespoke performance instrument using graphical programming environment Pure Data. You can listen to some of Dan's examples, composed using bespoke sonic mapping software, here.

About the Instructor: Dan Tapper explores the sonic and visual properties of the unheard and invisible. From revealing electromagnetic sounds produced by the earth’s ionosphere, to exploring hidden micro worlds and creating imaginary nebulas made from code. His explorations use scientific methods alongside thought experiments resulting in rich sonic and visual worlds.
