Techniques in instrument/sculpture building and sound reproduction/amplification will be explored in both contemporary and historical approaches. Artists discussed will be both contemporary and historical figures within the sound art practice. Furthermore, students will explore the affective relationship to sounding objects and the physical limitations of gesture to sound producing objects.
