Last week I was in Trondheim, giving a workshop for students at the art academy. I have been teaching at the music technology study in Trondheim several times before, but this was the first workshop that I have been giving at the art academy.
The workshop followed a similar trajectory to the workshop I did in Kristiansand last fall, splitting the days into three. One session would present the history of experimental music and sound art. The next session was an introduction to audio editing in Reaper. This time I captured these sessions as screencasts, and made them available to the students. And thanks to the many brilliant screencasts that Kenny Gioia has been provided at the Reaper website they have plenty of materials for further learning. The last part of the day would be set aside for work on the students own projects.
One of the day we went to Heimdal to see and discuss how I worked on sound in this exhibition, a collaboration with Jeremy Welsh and Jon Arne Mogstad. The final day we went to Trondheim kunstmuseum to see and hear the sound installation by Jana Winderen that is part of the Lorck Schive Art Prize Exhibition.
Afternoons were spent dining and discussing with Piya, my former colleague from BEK. Saturday we did a visit to Jon Arne’s studio, seeing new paintings that he is currently working on, and doing some paint geeking. We also got to see Kaia Hugin’s work at Rake Visningsrom, curated by Jeremy. An interesting space, and a strong work.
