Ciani Versus Buchla: An Audacious Experiment in Sound Design

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

"[W]e played tennis frequently. He was a very good tennis player, and we shared that passion." Suzanne Ciani talking about Don Buchla (Electronic Musician, May 2017). What would that have sounded like? Using Audacity, we will create an imaginary auditory narrative of a game of tennis played by two of the greats of synthesized sound. We will model the sound of Ciani’s serve, Buchla’s return, a racquet hitting a ball, the bounce of a ball back and forth on the court, and the roar of a crowd.

No experience with Audacity or sound design (or tennis) is required, but participants must bring a laptop (Mac or PC) of their own. Please download Audacity before the workshop.

** This workshop is free and open to the public as part of Moogfest’s The Joyful Noise of STEAM program, and is appropriate for children ages 14 and up. A festival ticket is not required to attend. 

** This workshop is limited in capacity and offered on a first come first served basis. Please plan to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. 

** Entrance is not guaranteed.
