Electronics Workshop


Week 11: March 31 – April 6

This final workshop will integrate networked sound/music with all the elements of the project: including movement, costumes, wearables, sensors and imaging. Students will explore the transformation of movement, sensors, and imaging into sound (and vice-versa), how data can be transposed between the visual and the aural to integrate and unify movement and visual expression.


Due Next Week: Thursday, April 7

1 – Movement Practice

As preparation for Thursday’s rehearsal, Angeline has requested that you all find a space to rehearse your movement for at least 30 min and annotate the experience, noting any new discoveries.  Annotation can take the form of writing, drawing, video, which ever method is most useful. I would suggest that you include this annotation in your project update.

I would suggest you rehearse with your sound:

2 – Project Update #4

Document the work you have done in class as well during the course of the week: in this case, costume construction. Take photographs of your work, describing each image to document your process. This is a very important aspect of this course: we are not just concerned with the end result, but with process, the documentation of ideas, materials, objects, and creative activity.

Be sure to use the category “Final Project” with your post.

You can use B-17 after 5pm each day to work on your garments and wearables. This room has sewing equipment. Your card access will be activated very soon. Next week we are meeting in B-17 during regular class time.
