Reboot: Introduction to Sound Design with Munotida Chinyanga
This workshop is for people who identify as women, trans and non-binary.
What does sound mean to you? In this session we will explore our relationships with sound and space, both within daily life and within experiences. We will look into how technology impacts our sonic experiences and the ways that headphones, earphones and speakers affect sound and intimacy. There will be both practical tips and conceptual ideas about how to approach sound design for theatre and performance.
This workshop will take place online via zoom.
