i was invited by SASSAS to create a one night class which will happen in eagle rock on april 15th. it it is part of a series called Make it, Install it, Perform it: Listen

i didn't realize until today that class reservations must be made by APRIL 14, and are limited to 15 people... so i'm posting a note here in case anyone local is interested:

Steve Roden leads a workshop using the concept of the Phonoautograph as a means to explore the notation of sound towards the making of a score and improvising music. Invented in 1850, The Photoautograph translated sound into a drawing etched into a field of soot. That drawing, recently translated via a computer program into audible sound, is now considered the earliest known audio recording. The movement back and forth between sound and image is the basis for the workshop. Steve will begin with an introduction to his own work and will then lead the group in two hands on components -- the first exploring various listening and notation strategies directly on to 16mm film stock, the second, to view the film projected, and to explore ensemble improvisation using the film as a "score.” This will be a decidedly low tech affair, and rather than focus on specific techniques, the hope is that participants can share much in the way of dialogue surrounding listening, drawing, translating, improvising, composing, etc.

Participants must bring their own instruments and amplification if needed.
