ASA 2003

Middle School students participated in Acoustic Ecology and Soundscape Recording. Hearing goes largely under-utilized in contemporary society, frequently being relegated to a mere accentuation of our visual world. In this course, participants will be exposed to a wide range of ideas, techniques and technologies for focusing and sensitizing their aural awareness of the world around them. They will consider how enhancing this aural awareness can alter their relationship to the urban environment and what impact human sound making has on that environment

ASA Spring 2004
The Spring 2004 class, entitled Recycling Media, was initially planned as an experiment in combining the processes of stop-motion animation with that of collage and video appropriation. Teaching Artist Andrew Lynn originally envisioned a single experimental documentary being the product of this class, but the course evolved according to the needs and wishes of the students, and instead produced several short ones. "I could not have planned a course to turn out such diverse projects as the ones produced here in the past weeks," stated Lynn. "The work seems to be a result of me letting go of some of the core ideas that were important to me at the outset and embracing the new ones that were brought to table by the student artists."

High School
Fakes: Digital Documentary and the Animation of ‘Truth’

Teaching Artist: Benj Gerdes
Experiments in simulation, forgery and dishonest documentary provided a basis for a class dialogue around ethics and the concept of truth in our contemporary political moment, alongside reconsiderations of the relationship of sound, image, and text in critical art practices.

Middle School
Electronic Recycling
Teaching Artist: Federico Muelas

Students worked with Basic Stamp microcontrollers, commonly used sensors (light, motion, heat, touch, etc), and basic physical computing to control “hacked” old and/or out of order devices such us VCRs, slide projectors, computers, and electronic toys. The 'recycled' equipment was re-engineered to develop a series of projects which comprise a visitor-driven interactive installation.

Rosenthal's After-School Atelier middle school course, Acoustic Ecology and Soundscape Recording, exposed participants to a wide range of ideas, techniques and technologies for focusing and sensitizing aural awareness of the world. Listeners consider how enhancing this aural awareness can alter their relationship to the urban environment and what impact human sound-making has on that environment. Rosenthal's students developed self-reflective aural archives using the sounds of their homes, neighborhoods, families and friends.
