The sense of hearing is often perceived as the poor relative of the five senses, and yet it is an integral part of our daily lives. It allows us to capture a multitude of natural or manufactured sound worlds, which despite their apparent immateriality, are indeed tangible and captivating.
The various spheres of sound creation are numerous and are declined in many ways. Sound spatialisation, sound effects, electroacoustic music, Hörspiel and musique concrète are just a few examples. For our workshops, we decided to focus on Foley Art, a discreet but essential phase in the fabrication of a film.
By participating in these fun workshops, students will have the opportunity to discover what it means to be a sound engineer while developing their own listening skills. They will participate in projects that encourage collaboration and their auditory perception will be forever transformed!
All our workshops are flexible and adaptable to your needs. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss and establish a plan that suits you!
Cinema for the ears!
In this workshop, students will get involved in one of the lesser-known steps in the making of a film: Foley Art. Using everyday objects, their voices and their own bodies, they will practice, for the duration of a project, Foley Art, a technique that has remained untouched by various digital transformations. Even today, the sound environments of the greatest films are made from real and concrete elements.
This workshop is available for elementary 2nd and 3rd cycles and high school students.
