AIR FLYING THROUGH NOISE

As a group, you will create a 45 minute long 'sound collage' reflecting on your travels to and from the L.A. Art Book Fair. Through the use of sound recording alone, you will investigate and try to capture the experience of yourself and the people around you on your journey. Using the examples below as points of departure, think about how language can be broken down into sound, how sound could be used to create a disembodied 'visual', and how listening can become active.


GUIDELINES & NOTES:

You can use the following open-ended structure to help organize your recording.
Divide yourself into groups of 2-3:

OUTSIDE OUTSIDE
OUTSIDE INSIDE
INSIDE INSIDE
INSIDE OUTSIDE
OUTSIDE OUTSIDE

Beyond thinking about how each of these concepts can relate to geography and place, for example:
OUTSIDE OUTSIDE Journey to the LAABF
OUTSIDE INSIDE Arriving outside of LAABF
INSIDE INSIDE The experience inside of the book fair
INSIDE OUTSIDE The space outside of the book fair after your have experienced it
OUTSIDE OUTSIDE Journey home

Think also how these concepts can relate to a greater political, cultural, social context.

Each section has a recording of at least: Person, Place, Thing.
Each section has someone reading from something.
A recording of each of your voices.

some examples:
Interview a stranger
Record something without permission
Record 1 unknown sound (heard or made)
etc.
