Beyond Audacity: Resounding Affects/FX in Sonic Environments

Session abstract or description: 

You’ve tinkered with an audio editor and maybe even taught a class or two that included an audio project and now you are anxious to do more. The affordances of many Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) programs offer sonic rhetoricians features that can engage us in listening to and shaping audio with a sense of play that promotes invention and re-sounding in multi-modal projects. This workshop will demonstrate some of the most useful of these features, while teaching participants listening skills that can stimulate their thinking about how sound affects. Participants will experiment with fx by using a DAW to remediate a text of their choice.
