description:
Contemporary culture abounds in multimedia forms, in which sounds, images and words are interwoven in unique ways. What are their individual and combined powers? How are they used in arts and popular culture? How would YOU harness them? Viewing, analysis and interpretation of intermedia works of various genres and cultural traditions prepares participants to develop their own creative projects. The seminar is taught at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics where students have access to new media technologies.
process:
The class will present multimedia material gradually. After being introduced to wide range of examples from different genres and traditions involving idioms of words, sounds and images individually, students will study and explore different media combinations. Each student will work on 3 assignments, an intermedia haiku, an analysis presented in class and a final project. The intermedia haiku, class presentation and the final project will involve all three media. The primary platform will be Adobe Studio CS6. The software is available at CCRMA Studios C (IPL), D and E as well as on all cluster Macs at libraries and other locations on campus (Meyer, Green, Tressider and more). Most students' work will be viewable on the web.
