This course provides an overview of nonlinear audio production and sound culture with an emphasis on integration with other narrative formats. Sound is one of the most profound ways to convey ideas, sensations, and information; and, since it complements and enhances visual experience rather than excluding it, it can be one of the most flexible too. In this introductory-level course, students gain familiarity with the basic tools and techniques of nonlinear audio production. Projects improve listening skills, raise awareness of our aural experience and sonic environment, integrate sound with narrative visual media, and allow us to communicate and conceptualize with sound.
