CAPE Sound Design Project


The Sound Design Project is an arts integration program that explores a specific medium: sound. Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education collaborated with sound artist Lou Mallozzi, SAIC professor and Founder of Experimental Sound Studio, to implement this three-year investigation into the intersection of experimental sound arts and music pedagogy, and their impact on academic learning.

This exhibition showcases student artwork created during the 2014-2015 school year. During this third and final year, teacher artist teams focused on documentation and exhibition practice. This provided an opportunity for participants to explore and reflect on ways of sharing audio work in a visual context. This opportunity to share the work with the public highlights the role of research in arts integration practice, specifically the research-driven teaching and arts practice developed by these teams.
