This MasterClass is aimed at sound designers, sound engineers, musicians, composer, directors and producers and offers the unique opportunity to gain practical experience and personal feedback on one’s own work in close collaboration with Midge Costin. In the run-up to the workshop, the participants will receive a homework assignment to create their own sound design. The results will be part of the discussions on the last day of the workshop.
