- Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This assignment is focused on sound and encourages both careful listening practices and composition practices that are controlled and deliberate. Contemporary culture is visually saturated, making it easy to neglect the role of sound, particularly as it impacts multimodal compositions. To prepare students for the project, Vicki Callahan assigns readings from sound scholar Michel Chion, asking students to apply his listening strategies to the soundtrack of a seminal cinematic scene. From there, students acquire and assemble a series of soundtracks, both found and recorded, and edit them into a soundscape that offers a new slant on a particular concept or event. This project can be adopted by others quite easily. Adding a viewing of “Scary ‘Mary Poppins,’” a short video that demonstrates the power of sound by recutting the trailer for Mary Poppins with scary music, could enhance the preparatory work.
