Final works will be posted on the blog, or your choice of audio sharing services/sites

No late assignments will be accepted.


Students will create an audio art piece between 30 seconds and 1 minute in length.

While the conceptual parameters for this project are open, consider some of the themes and strategies of the artists listened to in class.

Some strategies may include:

-You may assign yourself (or others) a conceptual feat, and perform it, or document it in sound.

-You may combine different layers of sounds reflecting places, times, popular music, and voices.

-You may interpret or translate non-audio experiences or spaces in sound.

-You may re-interpret noise or other found sound as music.

-You may perform a list, or other kinds of interesting found or constructed language.

-You may distort or edit found sound or music, to change its original meaning and effect.

Consider audio works by some of the following artists:

Dave Dyment

Santiago Sierra

Yoko Ono

Daniel Olson

Matthew Sawyer

Jonathan Monk

Christian Marclay

Kelly Mark

John Cage

Janet Cardiff

Steve Reinke

Emeka Ogboh

After critiques and final revisions – students will post their works with a title and short description on our class Blog.
