Assignment #1: Due Tuesday, February 9th

Our first assignment is an exercise in listening, in seeking, discovering, and gathering sounds you find interesting and potentially musical. Using the resources you bring into the project studios as well as the portable recorders available through the library reservation desk, gather and edit a collection of sounds.

Look toward gathering a collection of 30 individual sounds or textures, 15 made in-studio and 15 collected elsewhere. The result should be an archive of folders, one for in-studio and one for outside sounds, with subcategories within as you see fit (percussive, ambient textures, pitched, un-pitched, etc).

The finished archive should be zipped (on the Mac, right-click on the folder and choose “Compress…”) and uploaded to the link below.

I suggest the following naming scheme:
