RE: Sound the City

Sound, like the sense of touch, gives us authenticity and credibility for a setting. This workshop asks, “How can we use this to change the perception of time and place? How can we create small stories without the need of language and pre-produced music?” You don’t have to be a composer to compose a sound design, nor do you need to have mad technical skills. Working with sound is a fast and unique way of creating new layers and rediscovering old layers of a place.

Participants will need to bring their own computer and should download the 30-day free trial of Reaper (https://www.reaper.fm/ ) and Ableton Live (https://www.ableton.com/de/trial/) in advance of attendance.

Workshop Leader Biography:
Born 1981, Karolin Killig studied media technology (specialized in radio broadcast) and sound for audiovisual media at the renounced university for film and television in Potsdam, Germany. Since 18 years she is working as sound designer/composer and tonmeister for movie and theatre productions and in several theatres in Germany (Schauspiel Essen, Schauspiel Köln, Schauspielhaus Bochum, Grips Theatre Berlin,...) with Barbara Hauck, Thomas Ladwig, Rimini Protokoll, Lilja Rupprecht, Nuran David Calis and many others. She developed sound walks with the University of Osnabrück, hacked sensor-controlled sound interfaces for site specific interventions with communication design students at the Folkwang University Essen and worked with children (8-13yrs) on the topic of ghosts in industrial heritage sites in sound theatre performances and exchanging the sounds of their every day lifes with partnerschools in Spain. Her work is based on perception, simultanous events and the creative gap in the head of the audience that enhances the picture and actually builds the story.
