Workshop: Creative Sound Studies

with Juan Cisneros

Explore methods and practices for the DIY musician with an emphasis on the 21st century sound artist.

Students will look at the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and sound artist Raven Chacon for inspiration.

Chacon will showcase his ambitious, multi-instrumental composition, and site-specific performance of Tremble Staves to Laguna Gloria on Oct 13 (Fri) in conjunction with the exhibition This Land at The Contemporary Austin – Jones Center opening on Sept 28 (Thurs). 

Students will use this inspiration to create a physical instrument and experiments to take home.
