Aural Terrains. Hand-In One: Sound Bites

Gourmet Listening.

For this hand-in we were tasked with creating a three minute sound clip comprised of recordings we had made this week.  We were to find places of personal interest, and record any noise there that captured our attention. 

With our project we decided to fill our three minute track with sounds created in the kitchen.  I thought this would be a good place to gather samples from.  It would provide interesting "sound-bites" (geddit?) that everyone would be familiar with but not necessarily recognize.

Aural Terrains. Noise as an Art-Form

In the first week of semester one we have been dissecting the idea that noise without music can be viewed (or heard) as a legitimate art-form.  That sound can be independently sculpted into bodies of work without rhythm or melody.

Somewhat Unrelated. Clearing my Head.

I am now officially one semester into the AUT Bachelor of Creative Technologies program. The course itself is completely different to what I had anticipated. I have toyed with ideas and methods which I never would have glanced at six months ago. Realistically though I wonder how much I am actually learning.

Catching Up. Star Trak

Have gotten fairly behind with blogging.  This project has been handed in and assessed already.  Anyway I think this video should demonstrate what we achieved and there will be some finished footage after the jump.
