PROCESS


As we listen, consider the following questions:

Take notes if you wish.

  • What processes can you identify?

  • Are they analog (acoustic) OR digital?

  • What role is the technology playing?

  • How does sound support the concept or message?

  • The title of the work  

  • Duration

  • Sonic material (texture, layers, movement, space etc.)
