Hello! I'm teaching an online, 4-week course called "Make Your First Audio Piece" for the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies. This course is for new producers who want support in starting out in the audio world and making their first piece.
As this course is for new producers who may not have worked in audio yet, I want to make it as accessible as possible. So I am setting up a mutual aid fund for folks to draw from to contribute to the cost of the course.
The whole cost of the course is $350 -- if you would like to contribute to the full cost, half cost, or even $10 -- you would be creating an incredible opportunity for a new producer!
If you are interested in taking the course and would like to draw from the fund for the cost of the course please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org :).
Tuition: $350 (scholarship available)
Wednesdays 6:30-8:30 pm EST (Zoom)
for 4 Weeks starting October 5th
Sometimes the hardest part of trying something new is getting started. In this 4 week course, audio producer Jules Bradley will create a supportive and invigorating environment to make your first audio piece and build your confidence to continue creating. The final piece will be whatever you want to make – non-narrated oral history, mini-audio doc, fiction, poem, sound art piece – the only criteria of the final piece is that you make it.
This course is designed for total beginners, and would be the perfect class for students considering taking the full Salt audio certificate as they create their application portfolio pieces.
Over the course of four weeks, you will be introduced to the hard and soft skills of making an audio piece. Together we will demystify the process of editing and sound design, follow our creative impulses, deconstruct societal and self-imposed barriers to creativity, learn and practice the logistics of making a piece from start to finish, and work together in a generative editorial process. The central objective of this workshop is to create an accessible and fun environment to foster your love of creating in an audio medium.
The only resources needed for this workshop are a method of recording (a phone, portable recording device) and access to a computer that can run a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). Jules will be teaching in Reaper (has a free trial), but any DAW will work.
