Theoretical context and tricks of the underwater world
Ben Cozens comes from the roots of club DJ’ing and drumming, where a music production degree led quite by chance to Sound design. A student of all audio fields from foley to the final mix, working with animations through to video games, BBC to Universal. Two years of intricate work on the Blues Crab with Curv’s Ari Rubenstein have passed since Ari and Ben met where they discovered a mutual love of the music of Muscle Shoales and began to discuss creating a film with a similar sonic vibe. Ben is proud to be back in Bournemouth, his family’s town, to share his passion for sound.
The masterclass will be half sound design theory and the bedrock stages of an approach to any sonic project and half insight to the techniques applied in order to create the underwater sounds of the Blues Crab. There will also be some inventive sonic presentation thrown in for entertainment too.
