Soundpainting is the multidisciplinary sign language for live composition. This technique includes more than 1,500 gestures that allow for the creation and sculpting of performance in real time. The fundamental philosophy of Soundpainting is that everyone is equal and there are no mistakes. Students will become Soundpainting performers, learning to respond across artistic disciplines to the basic 44 gestures, moving into 75 gestures of Level II. Students will also learn the basics of becoming Soundpainters themselves, culminating in the development and performance of their own compositions.
