An Introduction to Audio Editing
Friday November 15 & Saturday November 16, 2013, 10:00am–4:00pm. $165.00
Instructor: Erica Heilman, Radio Producer
Audio stories have the capacity to open a window into another world, and
they can be shared in a number of ways. They can be broadcast on the radio,
streamed online, combined with images to create audio slide shows, or used
to transform a standing exhibit. Recording audio is increasingly easy in the
digital world, and digital audio editing tools make it easy for individuals
and communities to create rich and provocative sound stories.
This two-day workshop offers participants an introduction to the techniques
of digital audio editing. On the first day, participants will receive a
quick course in recording technique and then hit the streets of Middlebury
to conduct short interviews. Back in the classroom, these recordings will be
used as raw material to edit together short audio pieces. By the end of two
days, attendees will have the skills to begin working on their own sound
stories at home.
This workshop is intended for students, community members, staff members of
non-profit cultural, community, and social-service agencies, as well as
professional researchers interested in learning more about digital audio
editing. No editing experience is required, but participants should be
confident computer users. The workshop is taught on Macintosh computers,
using a digital editing program called Soundtrack Pro. The fundamental
skills developed will be transferable to any audio editing platform.
