Abstract / Description of output

This paper will focus on a creative process that took place in Derry Northern Ireland in June of 2014 and culminated with the production of a CD of sound art works. The project engaged a group of older adults, who were members of the University for the Third Age (U3A) in Derry, to explore sound art through mobile technologies. During a two-week workshop period these participants recorded various soundscapes within Derry, edited and designed sounds on mobile technologies, and created a series of sonic art works for publication. The following paper discusses the processes and practices used to introduce sound art and technology to this group.
