Sound Stories with Lianne Cranfield

Sound Stories is a course designed to introduce primary school children to sound-based story telling. Working with sound as an art form and its conceptualization in a world of visual bombardment, the magic of sound art inspires us to tune into what is invisible to the eye. Activities focus on heightening listening skills and harnessing the power of sound to tell our story.
