As natural storytellers and documentarians, humans have long understood sound as a medium to capture, interpret, and communicate ideas and feelings. Though society has had the tools to transmit voice and audio to mass audiences for over a century, advents in technology within the past ten years or so have placed those same tools onto many of our desktop computers, mobile devices, and more. True audio engineering is more than simply hitting “Record,” however; there is an art form that emerges from a strong understanding of this widely available tech—one that has the potential to craft poems, stories, and sonic experiences that stir the spirit and influence the mind.
Join audio producer Julianna Bradley, creator and host of the youth-centric Inherited podcast, for an introductory exploration of some of these tools and techniques. In these 4 90-minute sessions, teen registrants will take a deep dive into accessible, FREE audio tools as well as sample audio clips – optionally including their own voices! – to compose a variety of soundscapes, spoken-word explorations... even their very own podcast!
