THE SCHOOL OF SOUND
A unique series of masterclasses exploring the art of sound in film, the arts and media
The School of Sound is a unique 4 -day series of masterclasses exploring the creative art of sound with image. Ideal for producers, directors, editors, animators, dancers and everyone working with sound. Some student bursaries available. The event takes place April 3-6 2013 at the Southbank Centre, London
Since 1998, the SOS has established itself as the major forum for the creative use of sound in media and the arts. The four-day masterclass series introduces the audience to an eclectic group of speakers from cinema, theatre, radio, dance, sound art, music, architecture and games. They include professional practitioners, artists and educators who reveal the methods and creative thinking that lie behind the most effective uses of sound and music in screen, installation and audio production.
The discussions have grown wider and deeper but at the heart of every presentation is how we experience sound, that is, how we listen.
The SOS is a meeting of practitioners, artists, academics and students from around the world. In 2011, three hundred people from forty countries attended the SOS, immersing themselves in a programme that is as useful for the director, producer or screenwriter as it is for the sound designer and composer. Sound in storytelling, sonic environments, human sound perception – the topics range from the practical to the aesthetic to the abstract.
