Workshop: Raspao sound/video cart with Alexandra Gelis
September 20, 2016 - September 22, 2016| Free
Artist: Alexandra Gelis
School: VISTA High School
Teacher: Nicole Miceli
Topic: Hacking and creating video and sound for a hybrid audio-visual vehicle/Raspao cart. This moving sculpture serves up snow cones, capturing and playing back sounds and videos while moving through the streets of Taos.
Workshop description: In this three day workshop students will learn about the science and technology behind the hybrid audio-visual vehicle/Raspao cart. They will explore plants in the area to produce “raw” material for the Raspao cart. The visual and aural result will be use as prerecorded loops to mix within the cart. In that way, memories of the history of the plants and some of the environmental history of the area will be part of the route in the Festival. In the workshop the youth will learn basics of sound and video recording and editing. The sound component will include the making of a contact mic, techniques of recording and mixing. For the video, we will be recording with DSLR, point-and-shoot, and GoPro cameras. Editing in Final Cut Pro will introduce participants to the basics of creative video editing.
