SOUND–CINEMA–CITY – Workshop – Explore sound using cinema and gallery spaces with artist in residence Redmond Entwistle • September 22nd, 24th, 6pm–10pm and October 1st, 6pm–10pm 2009

This three-part workshop on concrete sound recording, the city and cinema with lift’s Fall 2009 visiting artist in residence Redmond Entwistle will explore ways in which the city can be represented through sound installation using both cinema and gallery spaces. The workshop will start with a class looking at some examples of spatial sound, cinema and architecture. In particular Edgar Varese’s Poeme Electronique for the Philips Pavilion, an amazing contorted, gravity defying pavilion structure, designed by Le Corbusier for the 1953 Worlds Fair, with 450 distinct spatially arranged channels and film projections. The class will also race through the history of sound in cinema exhibition from the early talkies (via Fantasound) to Dolby Surround.

 

The second part of the workshop will be split into two parts, the first will consider new works by contemporary artists and filmmakers working primarily with sound to construct spatial narratives about the city in both the cinema and the gallery. The second half of the class will take the form of a workshop in which we discuss individuals’ project proposals, take a look at some possible tools for recording and installing sound, then select and learn how to use particular sound recorders. Participants will be encouraged to use a variety of new and old, high and low tech sound technology from dictaphone to Nagra to flash recorders. In the third part of the workshop the group will review the materials collected, and assist in developing the performance or installation of each work, which we will then consider and critique as a group.
