The beauty of field recording, and moreover listening, is that it can happen anywhere. Join us as we explore various “sound locations”, collect recordings, share techniques/methods and discuss the ways in which field recordings can be used in sound art and music practices.

You don’t need to be a skilled field recorder to attend – this is for everyone, from the curious first-timer to the well-experienced sound designer. This field trip will cover not just technical aspects, but philosophical, aesthetic and conceptual approaches to working with environmental sound.

Participants are required to bring their own recording device – whether it is a digital field recorder, cassette recorder, minidisc, iPhone, iPad, video camera, or other mobile recording device, as well as their own set of headphones. English will work with you to develop your approaches towards capturing compelling recordings using any kind of technology.
