Commonplace objects used to engage learners in design thinking

"In this studio paper students will be introduced to creative and analytical thinking skills, idea generation and visualisation common to art and design practice. They will begin to acquire specific techniques, skills and processes in art–making across different media. They will learn to discuss and evaluate their work and the work of their peers."

Organ of Corti (2010-11) an experimental acoustical intervention

"Organ of Corti is an experimental instrument that recycles noise from the environment. It does not make any sound of its own, but rather it attempts to draw our attention to the sounds already present by framing them in a new way. Named after the organ of hearing in the inner ear, it uses the acoustic technology of sonic crystals to accentuate and attenuate frequencies within the broad range of sound present in road traffic or falling water. By recycling surplus sounds from our environment, we hope to challenge expectations of what might constitute a piece of music by adding nothing to the existing soundscape but rather offering new ways of listening to what is already there. This instrument is a device that, for us, rematerializes our experience of sound, inviting us to 'listen to ourselves listen'."

(Frances Crow and David Prior)

Audio Foundation: Alt.Music

"Organised by committees in every major city in NZ under the Audio Foundation, Altmusic is an ongoing series of audio events, regularly bringing a vital injection of contemporary and avant–garde sound art from around the world to New Zealand.

As a turning cog in a thriving local audio art culture, Altmusic has, since 2001, offered a concentrated gathering point where New Zealand's audio art and experimental music scenes can cross wires with those from other centres (and other peripheries). At the same time Altmusic gives audiences the opportunity to share space with audio artists at the very pinnacle of their field, and previous years have seen programmes of performers who tour rarely and are highly regarded around the world.

Altmusic is listening with an eclectic breadth across a range of sonic trajectories, with programmes including artists investigating the embodied nature of performance and the place of live media within sound culture and some of the world's most respected pioneers of electronic music.

Altmusic does not offer a unifying framework, into which a genre ('sound art' 'noise' etc) is neatly packed, rather it attempts to disclose an–often clamorous – discursive space, in which ongoing debate as to what comprises an innovative art of sound can be publicly articulated. Aligned to such utterance is the experiential listening space which is the ground where sound art thrives, and where you, as listener, are given a chance, via the live context, to re–imagine spectatorship as participation."

(Sally Ann McIntyre)
