Field Recording Workshop
Led by Clay Chaplin
Sunday, April 5th 2pm to 5pm Session 1 – instruction
Saturday, April 11th 4pm to 6pm Session 2 – sound performance by students
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.
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).
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.
Session two will be a listening and discussion party where everyone presents their field recording.
