The School of Sound
The 2019 School of Sound features sessions on film sound design, improvisation, jazz, sound art, animation, documentary, silent film music, radio, theatre and DJ-ing
The School is a carefully curated series of long-form talks from speakers we think have a lot to say. The intensive four day experience creates opportunities for delegates to start to think and listen in new ways.
You will not learn hardware or software but you will have the chance to discover new ideas and perspectives, challenge your thinking and celebrate the extraordinary creative potential of sound.
