The internationally renowned artist and scholar Teri Rueb who is Professor of Critical Media Practices at the University of Colorado was hosted by the University of Brighton’s School of Media, the Centre for Digital Media Cultures, and the Creative Sound and Music Research and Enterprise Group.
She gave a workshop for postgraduate (PhD and MA) students and staff interested in digital or audio culture/art, from a theoretical or practical perspective.
Imagine a field of sound that is constant, yet made up of different tones, chords and beatings at the granularity of about 6 cubic inches. This workshop presented a model of a heterogeneous three-dimensional sound field currently under development toward full-scale installation. The discussions focussed on individual experience of this prototype as a way of revealing the subjectivity of listening and hearing.
Here are a few impressions from the workshop:
