“Sound Design” and “Music & Media” Courses at COMD, Bilkent University

 SoundDesign_MusicMedia

 

This term (2016-2017 Fall), I am offering two sections for COMD-361 Sound Design (15 students per section). I will offer the redesigned COMD-362 Sound Design II (15 students) and COMD-363 Music & Media (20 students) in 2016-2017 Spring semester. All undergraduate students at Bilkent University are welcome. For catalog descriptions at Bilkent University’s web site please click on the names of the courses.

Both Sound Design I and Music and Media are offered as elective courses, without prerequisities, so no technical or musical background is required. Sound Design II has a prerequisite (Sound Design I), but if you have experience in working with sound please contact me so that we can discuss your admittance to the course.

 

COMD-361 Sound Design

COMD-361 Sound Design is an introductory course designed to create and improve students’ awareness of and respect for sound in relation to visual media. Students are introduced to basic audio production and post-production techniques for video and film.

 

COMD-362 Sound Design II

COMD-362 Sound Design II is the continuation of COMD-361 Sound Design. Students are introduced to advanced audio post-production techniques for video and film. This course also explores components and creative potential of sound design in order to enhance communication through artistic and expressive uses of sound.

 

Here’s a video, a project created by Serda Ceren Sağbaş and Arda Tezok as a sound design term project. Except for the bass guitar, the music does not contain any “real” instruments or synthesizers… All the sounds that you hear in the song are sampled and manipulated sounds of keys, keychains, zipper, dice etc., and sounds that they made by their mouths or by their hands…

The following are links for photos from past Sound Design courses (Facebook albums):

Album 1 – Album 2 – Album 3 – Album 4

ATMM 2012 Closing

First of its kind in Turkey in the fields of audio technologies for music and media, ATMM (Audio Technologies for Music and Media) International Conference 2012 brought together professionals, academics, practitioners and students, not only from various cities in Turkey but also from other countries as well.

The idea of organizing a conference about music and sound technologies was born during a lunch in July 2011 in which Teoman Pasinlioğlu, Mustafa Ertan, Bülent Bıyıkoğlu and I were present. We thought a conference like this would serve as a bridge between both the academy and the industry in Turkey, and, also, the audio communities in Turkey and abroad.

The first ATMM (2012) was hosted by the Department of Communication and Design on 1-2 November 2012 at Bilkent UniversityAnkara, Turkey. ATMM 2012′s keynote speech was delivered by longtime music industry veteran Bobby Owsinski. Apart from opening remarks (by Bilkent University Rector Prof. Dr. Abdullah Atalar and Ufuk Önen & Teoman Pasinlioğlu) and keynote speech by Bobby Owsinski, 24 presentations, three musical performances and a panel about music technology education took place. For detailed program, please visit ATMM’s web site.

ATMM-2012-Bobby_Owsinski-IMG_3668s

Bobby Owsinski

Bobby Owsinki’s keynote speech was titled “The Music Industry Is NOT Dying”. On the second day, he held a workshop about preparation techniues for studio recording. The participants found both the speech and the workshop to be very informative and helpful. Owsinki was very pleased with the conference and the trip to Ankara as well. You can read about it in his own words: http://bobbyowsinski.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-atmm-conference-at-bilkent.html
