Course Structure, Learning Activities and Procedures

LP1 is largely design focused, though not exclusively on design. LP2 is largely art focused, though not exclusively. LP1 begins with concepts related to the nature of sound itself. They set a foundation for a sound design practice: sonic communication, sound and information, listeners and users, and some perception and acoustics. LP2 delves into the form and the experience of sound art. Relevant historical perspectives on art and design are referenced throughout. The course provides a well-rounded introduction that sets a basis for later, deeper inquiry.

The class incorporates seminars, workshops, group and individual projects, student presentations, peer-critiques and a public exhibit. A balance is struck between considering the work of influential artists and designers, exploring the affordances and constraints of sonic media and creating new works.

Projects and Assignments

All projects have a creative and reflective component. The reflective components are an essential tool for learning, and are essential for maintaining a high level of intellectual and creative work in the class. Furthermore, professional designers and artists require abilities to plan, articulate and argue for the reasoning behind their work. Reflective components provide training in this regard.

Creative Works
•    Artistic
•    Design
•    Documentation of these works (recordings and/or sound files, videos and/or photos of installations, technical plans and instructions, creator authored code, etc.)

Critiques and analyses
•    Reflections on students own work
•    Critiques of others work

Additional assignments
•    Class Presentations
•    Class activities (including short design and creative exercises)
•    Participation in a show. Participation includes contributing to the organization and execution of the show as well as presenting.

Examination
Om det finns beslut om särskilt pedagogiskt stöd, i enlighet med Riktlinjen Studentens rättigheter och skyldigheter vid Luleå tekniska universitet, finns möjlighet till anpassad eller alternativ examinationsform.
Assessment
Examination happens at regular intervals throughout the course. All projects involve both creative and reflective components, and both components must be completed to receive credit for the project.
