Recording on Lake Michigan, 2006
Soundtransit.nl Field Recording Workshop: 22-23 August, Almere, the Netherlands
I’m giving a two day workshop on listening to and making field recordings as part of the SITE2F7 Festival next weekend, 22-23 August 2008.
The workshop will run from 17:00-23:00 or later on the Friday night. In the afternoon we’ll listen to examples of different types and approaches to field recording from the Soundtransit.nl website as well as various CDs. Then we’ll learn a bit about using professional sound recording gear such as the Sound Devices 700-series field recorder, DPA microphone capsules, Mid/Side microphone rigs, windscreens and more. Then in the evening we’ll go out and record the area around De Paviljeons, a temporary museum space in heart of Almere where the festival is taking place. Saturday, from 10:00-17:00 we’ll listen to, critique and edit for presentation the recordings of the participants.
There will be a final presentation of the participants’ recordings as well as other works I’ve selected from Soundtransit.nl and other places at 20:00 that evening. There should be a few places left, and I think that it’s free… contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
