Sounds Elemental producer intensive: deadline May 3

Training opportunity for mid to advanced level audio folks. Details below.


Sound : [Slides] : Sounds Elemental Apply for AIR’s June and November Sounds Elemental producer intensives. Slots limited. Move now. Deadline for June intensive: May 3, 2010

If you’re interested in applying for our upcoming Sounds Elemental: Earth intensive with Harvestworks in New York City, now’s the time! Deadline for applications is a little over one week away. Read on for details…

We’re looking for producers to step into the void as AIR, in conjunction with Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center in New York City, once again offers two week-long intensives for mid to advanced level audio producers. You do not have to be a member of AIR to apply. This opportunity may be especially appealing to those working primarily in traditional narrative and documentary formats eager to experiment with unconventional approaches to assembling sound and telling story.

We have a new and exciting addition to our upcoming Sounds Elemental: Earth intensive. Guest instructor Amy O’Leary, new media editor at the New York Times, will drop by for an afternoon mini-dive into audio slideshow production. She’ll take the class through the basics of tools and techniques, building out the sound the of earth assemblage to another, increasingly popular media platform.

We will accept 10 students through a competitive application process for each class: Sounds Elemental: Earth, to be held June 21-25, 2010, and Sounds Elemental: Sky, to be held November 15-19, 2010 at Harvestworks in New York City. The cost is $650. AIR members living outside of New York City who are accepted are eligible for a small stipend to help underwrite the cost of the intensive and travel to NYC. This program, entering its 4th year, boasts a diverse and exciting roster of alumni working across a broad range of disciplines, from ATC and Marketplace reporters to musicians and sound artists.

We will accept applications for both sessions now.


Producers benefit from intensely individualized attention from renowned sound artists-teachers, NYC-based composers and performers Michael Schumacher, Hans Tammen (Harvestworks), Brenda Hutchinson (AIR), plus New York Times new media editor Amy O’Leary.
