For this assignment you will be writing a paper describing the sounds you hear. You should pick a safe place that is filled with interesting sounds. After the location is chosen, go there and sit for an extended period of time. Listen and write down all the sounds you hear. Every single one of them as they happen. Use whatever notation and format you want. This will be the sound equivalent of plein air painting or life drawing. The final product will be a paper similar to a score or some sort of scriipt for environmental sounds. We will share our experiences in critique.
