Apply for Sounds Elemental in NYC! | December 12 - 16, 2011

The summer temperatures are climbing. You know you'll be dreaming of these days come shivery December. Make sure your ears keep warm this winter by signing up for AIR's Sounds Elemental intensive at Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center in NYC. It's happening December 12 - 16.

We just finished up a smashing summer session focusing on ”metal," with reviews like "…it was great to be surrounded by people who don't need an explanation for why [working with] sound is awesome" and "I feel like I have new ears for listening, a new toolkit for making sound." This time around, our focus is Wood.

Are you up for it? We're looking for ten producers open to learning unconventional approaches to assembling sound and telling story. Slots are already filling up!


This opportunity may be especially appealing to those working in traditional documentary formats eager to recalibrate their orientation to sound and craft.

Producers benefit from intensely individualized attention from renowned sound artists-teachers, Harvestworks’ Hans Tammen, and public radio producer and musician Brenda Hutchinson. New York _Times_ new media editor Amy O’Leary will also lead an afternoon mini-dive into audio slideshows - called "bang on," "cutting edge," and "the highlight of the week" by participants.

The cost is $700. A non-refundable $350 deposit is required upon acceptance. AIR members who live outside of New York City are eligible for a small stipend to help underwrite the cost of the intensive and travel to NYC.

+++Attendance is mandatory for all sessions. If you are unable to attend each day of the intensive, please do not apply.+++
