Resonance, Refinements, and Rip-offs


Session Abstract/Description: 

This panel investigates how sound creates rhetorical activity, constructs public spacess and informs multimodal composing practices. Both the embodiment/acoustical and the mechanical productions/manipulations of our sonic enviroments are based in our embodied cultural experiences. We present research and teaching in which we can become more aware of these influences and use sound more effectively. "Stealing Sounds" combines voices, noises and sounds captured at flea markets and in classrooms with many kinds of visuals and other ephemera. "Processing Pedagogy" examines the practical and metaphorical value(s) of "Processing" within teaching and learning audio-visual writing. "Creating Social Resonance" argues how sound can offer student writers a deeper "auditory imagination" for all communication practices and stronger, more sensative ethical positions.
