Obsah kurzu

A year course is divided into two parts. First part is dedicated to audio and ways of hearing, second part offers discoveries of relations between the sound and image, explores ways of seeing.

First part of the course brings into focus the art of hearing (listening), perceives critically common modes of listening and offers a space to consciously cultivate our abilities to hear and thus - helps to use this sensitivity for deeper understanding of narrative potential of the sound itself. Besides listening to a different audio documentaries with emphasis on composition analysis, first part of the course summarizes the changes of our perceptions due to the switch from analog to digital audio.

Second part of the course benefits from the first, evolves sensitivity to a sound realm in relation to imagination (image). How does hearing influence our perception and understanding of the image? If seeing and hearing comes before words, how can we reach uniqueness of (our own) film language? Besides on going listening to audio documentaries, course will bring into attention different illustrations from documentary films where sound plays important role.

Last but not least both parts of the course lead to a study of important essays on Audio art and Cinema.
