The workshop consisted in an approach from practice to the Sound Story as an aesthetic in constant experimentation and development, discussing concepts and strategies of composition in order that each participant creates a micro piece / sound collage, using audio recordings made by themselves implementing simple guidelines to structure the work, using basic musical forms for the composition. The idea is that participants work with audio as a plastic material, so they cut, paste, retrograde, modify using editing tools, re meaning and appropriating the materials, creating a new sound composition. + INFO
