Feedback form is now closed.
A Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) produces a sonic waveform that typically doesn’t reach into the range of human hearing. Though we can’t hear it, we can hear its effect on a sounds we can hear. In a synthesizer keyboard, this is used to modulate some aspect of a sound and create subtle or not so subtle dynamics. In this class, we will explore this and other sonic tricks as metaphors for how to create more variation and thus more emotional and intellectual engagement in a poem. There will be a discussion on how subtle language is used to manipulate society and what the writer's role might be in encouraging free thought. Through writing prompts, conversation, and demonstrations we will probe the unseen worlds and find the pulse between image, metaphor, philosophy, culture, and music. Please bring a pen, pencil, crayon, computer, or other writing implement.
