Embodied Sound’ is a metaphor for the ways in which children experience their world though listening. The students of Collingwood College working with Kym Maxwell and Clare Cooper were asked to consider how they ‘embody’ sound through listening, to question what they hear and then to conceptualise it through instrumental resonance. They were asked to consider the contradictions in sound, such as those found in film and Foley techniques and to consider that gender may be associated to particular qualities in sound, instruments and/or image.
These series of workshops, scores, sculptures and sound recordings from the Collingwood College Sound Collective portray their ability to articulate variance in sound and its embodiment in instruments and images; whereby exploring resonance in everyday objects, sound in video recordings and animation, the value of mark making in orchestral notation and a capacity to question gender roles.
The students of Collingwood College performed a series of actions through progressive workshops with Kym Maxwell and Clare Cooper, demonstrating their capacity to debate, collaborate and build community through sound.
Over 2 weeks from September 11th the students’ with the team of Liquid Architecture will exhibit their works within the Westspace gallery alongside the FM (X) evening program.
