Given the increase of field recordings as compositional material, this two-part workshop will discuss the aesthetics of field recording and compare the results of practical work (in the field, of course).

re-opened for registration, but we only have 7 field recorders for people to borrow — if you still want to sign up, please bring your own audio recorder! we’ll be using edirols, but any similar audio recorder will work.

Class 1
Sunday, April 5, 2pm–5pm
Session 1: Instruction
with Clay Chaplin

The first session will cover the various possibilities and something of a history of the genre through listening examples and discussion. We’ll also cover the technical means for making field recordings including information on microphones, field recorders, and techniques for improving your sound. You’ll then have access to a field recorder which you can use to create a recording of your own.

Class 2
Saturday, April 11th 4pm to 6pm
Session 2: Sound Performance by Students
with Clay Chaplin

Session two will be a listening and discussion party where everyone presents their field recording.
