How can the act of listening create a collective experience at a distance? In this online workshop, participants will make sound visual through a series of listening and drawing exercises. Over the course of four sessions, we will listen closely to our everyday environments and translate the sounds that we hear through drawing, sound, and color. Working individually and collaboratively, we will create, interpret, and experiment with playing our sound compositions.
“And in the air we find ourselves together. Air is the material for the composition of a commons.”
—Micah Silver, Figures in Air
“Sound is touch at a distance.”
Hosted on Zoom by artist and educator Audra Wolowiec, each session is free and recommended for families with children ages 5 and up. Space is limited and reservations are required. Details about how to register can be found on the individual calendar event pages.
