Sound Art Workshop by Alia Pathan

April 8 | 10AM
Space 118 Studios
Sorry, this show is already over but head here for other fun events!


A comprehensive workshop that covers the basics of recording ambient sound, vocals and instruments. It will include making instruments from ready-made objects, recording sounds, patterns, rhythm and musical notation such as 'tabs'. Build a Foley pit, used for recording sound effects for Film and TV, using mulched fruit for the effects of walking through mud, or snapping carrots for the sounds of bones breaking, or paper for the sound of doors opening. Participants will then learn to make their own soundtracks, recording straight to edit; this will involve to some extent, recording a live score.

These tracks will be recorded onto the instructor’s computer and exported for the participants to take home. The instructor would then exhibit these works on her YouTube account with everyone’s names attached, which will be used for future references.

What will be provided?
- USB sticks for all to take project material and finished work home
- 1 Laptop and speakers to share
- Some basic sound and animation props
- Tea and light refreshments will be served in the evening

Any inspiring material relating to the workshop. Objects that make interesting sounds, instruments you like to play, home-made instruments, or kitchen utensils such as a cup or cutlery.
