MUSIC OF THE WILD – The sound of the living world
Three leading talents explore the converging spheres of sound and music

The sonic realm of the living world consists of three essential acoustic sources: non-biological natural, non-human organisms and human-generated sound. Together in any combination, these sources make up what is known as the soundscape. Human acoustic cultural expression historically draws from the first two of these and has evolved from its wild origins into both music and language. This programme investigates the converging spheres of sound and music, from outdoors into the concert hall and the gallery.

A weekend workshop at the London Film School

LFS Workshops is proud to collaborate with The School of Sound on this two-day seminar series. Building on the success of our recent sound courses, the seminars are aimed at those working in screen-based media, and offer three further perspectives on the use of sound and music in filmmaking.

Larry Sider, Annabelle Pangborn and Stephen Deutsch will each deliver a half-day seminar demonstrating the interrelationship between sound, music, image and story. The programme will include a discussion of strategies and concepts for working with sound and music, from pre- to post-production.

With particular relevance for directors, writers and producers as well as sound designers, editors and composers.

THE MEMORY OF SOUND: Preserving the Sonic Past

by Seán Street

This book explores the connections between sound and memory across all electronic media, with a particular focus on radio. Street explores our capacity to remember through sound and how we can help ourselves preserve a sense of self through the continuity of memory. In so doing, he analyzes how the brain is triggered by the memory of programs, songs, and individual sounds. He then examines the growing importance of sound archives, community radio and current research using GPS technology for the history of place, as well as the potential for developing strategies to aid Alzheimer’s and dementia patients through audio memory.
