Our instructors worked with the children and teens to promote learning and experiencing music without intimidation. The program concludes with concert open to the public. The unique and multifaceted immersion program is designed not only to be fun and exciting, but also to help the students develop a deepened sense of musical phrase, structure and form, as well as improve their performance skills. Next year, we will also be providing a new musical theater component to the program Monday through Friday and a Music Program for Toddlers will be scheduled in the mornings starting in January, 2008.

Micro Listening Workshop at SoBe Music Institute 
ISAW Interdisciplinary Sound Arts Workshop

 October 6 & 7, 2007

a microphone building workshop
conducted by isaw's
resident artist DAVID DUNN

Our Partner, ISAW Interdisciplinary Sound Arts Workshop, is presenting a 2-day Sound Arts Workshop at SoBe Music Institute.
The Micro-Listening Project is an art/science strategy for increasing the monitoring of our environment through sound. It hopes to provide new inexpensive technologies that can facilitate an increase in our collective environmental sensitivity and discovery of unknown natural and human-made phenomena, provide novel tools for sound artists, and contribute towards practical environmental problem solving.

The project focuses upon the design of inexpensive but highly effective audio transducer systems for bioacoustic and sound art monitoring of otherwise hidden aspects of our auditory environment that are not audible through use of conventional microphones.
In addition to these technological advancements for listening, the project seeks to document a wide diversity of such sound worlds for both demonstration of the transducers and general aesthetic revelation of our acoustic environment. Precise instructions on how to use and construct these devices will be part of this workshop. The devices are designed to allow as wide a distribution of their use as possible by both amateurs and professionals.
For Information call 305 981 0600.
