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 some of the sound locations we scouted:

We then took the students out in small groups for the listening exercises (if anyone is interested in more detail please contact me), these are some of the students in my group:

More photos form the Summer School are here.
