June 4, 2018 - June 10, 2018
murmuration # 1: Monday 4th June to Sunday 10th June, 2018
with Chris Watson, Jez riley French and special guests; Heather Ross, Stephanie John, Yvonne Billimore, Gill Russell, Kaffe Matthews
The week is intended for those with some experience of working with located sound / field recording & other areas of experiential site-specific work as it will be in the format of a field trip / gathering rather than a series of formal, instructional steps for beginners.
That said we of course welcome participants at all stages of experience and both Jez & Chris will be on hand throughout to offer guidance, support and deliver talks on various aspects of the act & art of listening. These will be scheduled on site to fit in with the weather and with the interests of those attending, but will include discussion of subjects such as:
. ambisonic recording . extended field recording techniques (contact microphones, hydrophones, coils, ultrasonics, geophones & infrasound) . sound diffusion . the history of field recording & of contemporary sound practices (sound art, sound design, location sound) . the ecological ear & environmental sonic concerns . microphone & recorder choice / listening through the technology . the psychology of listening
– a few highlights:
+ free sounds with every issue:
