Audio/Visual Club WB Spring 2020

Geek Forest


MAKER ELECTRONICS:
Audio/Visual Club

This is A/V club for the modern age! Working collaboratively and individually students will work to develop and produce multimedia art in many styles with advanced user-friendly music and video tools. Each class will include short screenings/listenings and research sessions where we learn about work by a wide range of artists and their tools/methods. We will be using the Pocket Operator, a portable music maker with extreme capabilities, to drive our class. Students will become familiar with rhythm, melody, digital music, soundtracking, recording, and tactile instruments through the Pocket Operator. Our music/sound pieces will inform a number of videos in styles including documentary, abstraction, fiction, and stop motion animation. Students will be encouraged to explore their interests through the work and will receive individualized help and inspiration! No musical or video experience is necessary and this class is mostly about learning new tools, getting comfortable making work, and blending the senses.

HTML Storytelling + Design 

This class will include a mix of digital storytelling, creative coding, and graphic design based on the interests and styles of individual students. We will use the application Twine, “a tool for interactive storytelling” to create web experiences without coding before moving into HTML coding in Sublime Text 2 and general graphic design. We will mix drawings on paper with photographs and digitally manipulated images, eventually bringing them into our own web-sites and experiences. We will create individual and group pages based on themes and student interest. Throughout the class, we will look at examples of interactive websites and digital art to draw inspiration and have fun! We will aim to make the internet a more fun and creative place outside of its dominant social media platforms.
