Workshop: Eco-sensing and the Soundscape at Light Box

Eco-sensing and the Soundscape Workshop

Saturday, April 28 at 10 AM – 1 PM EDT

Light Box, 8641 Linwood St, Detroit, Michigan 48206

Facebook Event

Description

Beyond speech and music, there is a world of sound. Listening and recording those sounds outside opens our ears and minds to their meaning and value. Come join us on Saturday, April 28 at 10:00 AM for a fun and inventive field recording workshop that will teach you to hear the world in a different way!

Sound artist and acoustic ecologist Eric Leonardson will teach you basics of record sounds in the outdoors, or indoors if weather imposes, with portable devices. He will show how field recording makes material for making new music, sound design, and understanding the world.

About Light Box Arts Center

Light Box is a vital venue for artistic expression and community gathering in Detroit, dedicated to experimentation and education within the broadest, most inclusive definition of ‘performance.’ Its members and collaborators champion the life-giving qualities of art and performance in their own rights, as well as the healing and liberating potentials of art-making.

We believe in the transformative power of art to enliven and build community, to strengthen and amplify individual voices and to foster socio-political justice. By housing multiple artists and projects in a Detroit neighborhood with deep historical and cultural roots, Light Box supports cross-pollination and collaboration, nurturing artistic experimentation & cultural expression by and among diverse communities. The space offers residencies, public showings, workshops, and social forums; incubating and presenting artistic work and programs that challenge, illuminate, and inspire.
