Are you a theatre maker who wants to use sound more but doesn’t know where to start?

Sound is a fantastic tool to support storytelling. Find out about the way sound can create spaces of its own and establish depth, context and atmosphere.

This training will enable participatory theatre makers to take a more in-depth look at the nuts and bolts of recording, working with and editing sound.

It will provide an introduction to software including Echoes (geolocated audio tours) and Shure Motive (mobile recording app), illustrated through a case study of how they have been used in a recent participatory music project delivered by Yorkshire Sound Women Network.

There will be time in the training for you to explore these apps hands-on, followed by an introduction to using Audacity (free sound editing software). You will need access to a smartphone / computer or laptop for this training and instructions will be given on how to download all apps and software which will be covered in the training prior to the event.
