Subject Description
This subject introduces students to fundamental principles of audio recording and production, to key characteristics of the radio broadcasting industry, and to the role audio plays in online media and audio-visual storytelling. Students learn how to ‘think sound’ and develop a news story or feature to maximise the potential of the audio medium. The lecture series provides a theoretical framework for the rapidly shifting world of live and crafted radio, podcasts and other audio forms online. It will introduce students to program formats from news and current affairs to magazine shows, documentary and features. The workshop component focuses on technical recording and production skills, and on the editorial and creative choices involved in recording, editing and mixing audio elements.
