Listening Exercises and Soundwalks at the Product Sound Design Summer School at Aalto Design Factory, Helsinki
A few weeks ago I was teaching at the Product Sound Design Summer School at Aalto Design Factory in Helsinki. It was great fun and here are some pictures from the event.
The module I was teaching focused on Listening Exercises and Soundwalks and was part of stage 1 ‘Sensitising’ of the summer school.
To be able to work with small groups of students I trained Stephen Barras, Inger Ekman and Sylviane Sapir. Stephen also wrote about this on his blog. It was very interesting to share how we use soundwalks in our teaching. Here are Read the rest of this entry »

A total budget of 30.000 Euro for artist’s fees, production, Read the rest of this entry »
There is a new Journal in the field of Sound Studies, called SoundEffects and dealing with “Sound and Sound Experience”. The editors are inviting submissions now. I’m hoping that some of you will submit some mobile sound experience-related articles, as this sounds like a great new initiative.
