"Sound Media 2" more closely examines both audio/visual relationships and sound/music genres, while expanding upon the techniques and ideas taught in the previous semester. Both individual and group projects will be based around the sound design and sound/music score of audio/visual works created within other classes, with an option to create further "stand-alone" sound/music works. The relationship of sound to editing within time-based and interactive works will be examined. Technical knowledge of sound recording and editing will be refined, with a concentration on working between audio/visual programs such as Final Cut Pro, Flash and Dreamweaver. Further techniques such as MIDI composition and analogue synthesis will be explored. A screening and listening lecture program will examine further sound/music pieces, installations and soundtracks.
