Radiophonics, Sound Art, Intermedia Art

Location

Digital Media Research Centre (DMARC), University of Limerick. Spring term 2011.

Description

This module was described in the course outline as "Computer Systems and Modelling in Music", but was essentially a placeholder for the specific expertise of the lecturer. I presented material on a wide range of intermedial practices, including radiophonics, sound art, phonography, sound ecology, and improvisation.

I used a continuous assessment model using ten graded activities that functioned as incremental learning objectives. Student abilities were tested in these areas: reading comprehension, research, citation style, group work and consensus-building, self-organisation, peer evaluation, oral presentation, short report writing, developing and presenting a formal paper, creation of visual aids (poster, slideshow).
