State of Sound is a North Carolina State University Libraries initiative. It invites the NC State sound making community to share their work and hear the work of others. Whatever sounds the community is making - music, podcasts, oral histories, anything recorded with intention - is welcome to be shared. Understanding and practicing recording sound can lead to stories and ideas being shared to wider audiences faster, can foster creative collaborations, can showcase innovative work, and can build communities of sound makers that motivate one another to develop media communication skills.

In this workshop, two North Carolina State University Librarians will lead attendees through hands-on activities which make use of innovative and accessible sound making and recording technologies and practices. The first activity - Songwriting in 15 Minutes - will result in everyone in the room writing, recording, and sharing a song to State of Sound in a very short amount of time. The second activity - Making Music with Music - puts attendees behind the decks in a DJ workshop, showing how records and recorded sounds are accessible instruments that can be remixed to share new ideas. All technology will be provided.

At the end of the workshop attendees will have a greater understanding of and appreciation for accessible sound making, sharing, and recording technologies and practices. They will see how stories can be told and how creative work can be showcased using these accessible technologies. And they will see how the State of Sound model inspires community, collaboration, and creativity through sound making.
