A equipa do projeto AUDIRE promove na próxima quinta-feira, dia 17 de junho, entre as 14h00 e as 16h00, uma oficina prática sobre princípios básicos de captação e edição de som. Dirigida a investigadores de Ciências Sociais, esta iniciativa pretende ajudar estudantes de pós-graduação e outros pesquisadores a utilizar elementos sonoros nos trabalhos de investigação que desenvolvem.
Que cuidados se deve ter durante a gravação de uma entrevista? E na captação de outros ambientes sonoros relevantes para as abordagens científicas?
Como editar o trecho de uma entrevista ou de outros conteúdos sonoros?
A que aspetos atender na utilização de recursos sonoros em apresentações em eventos científicos?
Que relevância pode ter o material sonoro para a investigação em Ciências Sociais?
Numa sessão de duas horas, os participantes vão ser convidados a experimentar equipamento e software específico, de utilização simples.
Inscrição gratuita, mas limitada a 10 participantes (até ao final do dia 16 de junho)
Sessão conduzida (em Português) por Madalena Oliveira e Cláudia Martinho.
Sound is a physical vibration that informs our daily experience. But it is also a language through which we also express our rational and affective experience. Thinking of sound as a connection and relationship, as an expression of flow and time, the Audire project team and Sopcom’s Radio and Sound Media working group invite researchers, professionals, students and artists to an online meeting, about the power of sound in communication.
How does sound impact the way we see the world? Can sound art promote engaged and active listening? How relevant is sound within a visual media culture? In addition to a plenary conference, this meeting also has space for the presentation of scientific works, and an online exhibition of sound artworks is also expected.
The event takes place on April 8 (only in the afternoon), entirely in English. The call for papers closes on March 15.
The links for the sessions of the online meeting LISTEN, FEEL, SAVE have already been disclosed to registered participants. If any participant has not received the message, please contact the organization by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration ends on July 16.
The detailed program of the online meeting LISTEN, FEEL, SAVE is now available. From 2pm to 3:30pm, the meeting is divided into 4 parallel rooms for presentation of communications. The link to the sessions will be disclosed to participants registered by email on the eve of the meeting.
In the free initiative Sounds of Distance, the AUDIRE project invited other ears to listen and record the acoustic effects of the COVID-19 containment quarantine. Quieter than usual, distant from the noise of the traffic and movement of cities, this new acoustic landscape brought to the foreground sounds to which we are usually less sensitive. The result was about 66 contributions from audio records.
The AUDIRE project now proposes to continue this collaborative project in the form of an online sound creation workshop. The proposal is to create soundscapes using the audio recordings of Sounds of Distance as a starting point, imagining and recomposing narratives and fictions, making free use of other sounds, music and voice.
The workshop will have two dynamics:
– Session I, July 6, 2020, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, via Zoom platform – collective listening session on soundscape creations
– Session II, July 13, 2020, between 10:00 am to 12:00 pm (individual scheduling), via the Zoom platform – individual session (30 minutes) for listening to works and guiding the creation of each participant.
The sound creations produced within the scope of the workshop must be completed and delivered by July 16, 2020.
The results of each participant will be published on the audire.pt page. A selection of sound creations will also be presented during the online meeting Listen, Feel. Save. Sound experience and acoustic ecology, on July 17, 2020.
Computer with audio editing and compositing software (can be a free software like Audacity) and basic knowledge of these tools.
