DANCE 16AX: ReVIVAL: A Site-Specific, Multi media Dance Theater Production

ReVIVAL: November 14-16, 2019 at Roble Studio Theater. Stanford Artist in Residence Amara Tabor-Smith leads the creation of a site-specific, multi media, dance theater work titled, ReVIVAL. ReVIVAL is a survival research performance work that is launched from the history of the student activism that took place on the Stanford Campus in the late 1960s, and has a particular focus on the student actions that led to the founding of the Committee on Black Performing Arts (CBPA). During the three week intensive, students will engage in a researched creative process which includes daily movement classes rooted in Afro-contemporary dance and improvisation techniques, theater training practices, and mining the Stanford archives: this will be the foundation for the creation of text and choreography. The question that each student will begin the process with is What parts of history do you/we choose to recall, remember, recreate and re-invent in order to carry us forward repaired, restored and revived? Students enrolled in this Arts Intensive course are expected to continue into the fall quarter culminating in the premiere of ReVIVAL the weekend of November 14-16.

FILMPROD 12AX: Write and Shoot: Narrative Filmmaking

Write and Shoot: Narrative Filmmaking is a hybrid writing/production course that guides students through the process of completing a 2-3 minute narrative film. Students will write scripts for short fiction films, and then, by filming them, learn to apply the fundamentals of digital video production. Initial classwork will include visual writing exercises, DSLR cinematography instruction, script work, and basic fiction film production. Students will continue on in groups of three to develop, film, edit, and critique 2-3 minute narrative films based on a shared class theme or narrative premise. This course is truly INTENSIVE and requires a significant amount of work (including nights and weekends) outside of class and daily deadlines for submission of creative work.

FILMPROD 13AX: Expanded Cinema

In this exploratory workshop, students will use the VR tools of 360 video and binaural sound design to tell immersive "stories". Students will use the conceptual framework of experimental cinema and documentary film to inform their work, while also pushing toward a new artistic language in this still-emerging form of VR storytelling. Over the course of two weeks, students will work in teams to create a series of short immersive pieces, culminating in a 2-3 minute VR video, with a keen emphasis on experimentation. The course is time intensive: requiring some nights and both weekends dedicated to production and editing, including several production field trips off-campus.

ME 15AX: Voluminous Design

This class aims to provide a synthesis of design and technique in metalworking. When using precious metals (silver and bronze) the scale of the works naturally becomes much smaller than other design endeavors. This intimate size allows for attention to detail and refinement not common or often considered in other areas of design. The method involves creating a piece out of wax, and going through a process to achieve that piece in metal. All projects will center on this process. Students will complete complete three projects, a quick-start ring, a client design theme project and a belt. Sara and Amanda have been teaching ME298: Silversmithing in Design at Stanford for 17 years, they are full time designers at RedStart Design, LLC and also Lecturers in Design in the Mechanical Engineering Department.

MUSIC 10AX: Science of Sound

Science of Sound will explore sound and sound-related technology from the perspectives of mathematics, physics, and acoustics. Scientists and engineers will have a chance to apply their technical knowledge to the field of music while musicians will learn how sound behaves physically and how it can be recorded, processed, and reproduced. Using the newly opened Bing Concert Hall as a focal point, we will study the science of sound recording, room acoustics, and multi-channel mixing and playback. Students will use what they learn to create short multi-channel compositions using special techniques to place sounds spatially. These pieces will be performed during the annual outdoor Summer CCRMA Transitions concert and again during the Fall 2014 CCRMA concert at Bing Concert Hall. We will use the textbook by Jay Kadis entitled Science of Sound Recording as our primary text and incorporate plenty of hands-on experience with sound equipment and electronics.
