Turn off the Lights: A Study of Glove Lightshows
About the Course:
*Sponsored by Ambience*
In this course students will develop the basic techniques in the art of gloving as well as some advanced moves including special techniques such as Poi and Tutting. By the end of this course students should have a good understanding of flow and rhythm while performing Light Shows. Furthermore, we will be covering a broad range of history from the start of the electronic music scene up ‘til the present day. Instruction will focus primarily on collaborative learning as well as some lecture/discussion.
In order to fully appreciate the material learned in this course, it will be required of students to purchase their own glove set online. The facilitators will provide information on which websites are recommended for buying such products in the first lecture. Aside from participation, there will be short, weekly assignments as well as a group project and final distributed throughout the course. The weekly assignments will be a very brief paragraph on an assigned topic regarding that week’s lecture material or reading assignment. The group project will consist of pairs of two people each performing Double Lightshows. The final will constitute a written exam based on lectures as well as a Lightshow performance that will fully test the knowledge and skills you have acquired throughout the semester. Students will be allowed no more than two unexcused absences.
Weekly Assignments: 20%
Group Project 20%
Passing Grade = 70% or higher
