How to open the ears? – An introduction to field recording – workshop

Sound – a readable medium that is accessible, and yet marginalised in the context of visual culture. Frequently, the main task of sound’s main tasks is associated with entertainment or music. In the meantime, sound as a phenomenon has more value – informative, cognitive or social and most of all it is the contemporary language of art. Interesting example of sonic art are field recordings focused on sounds of the researched area. I want to explain the idea of field recording.

The workshop consists of a practical and theoretical part and includes a brief historical outline of the phenomenon,  main aesthetic principles and production of the recordings, work methods and recording techniques.

The study of the sonic environment can be the beginning of understanding one’s own identity and the character of a given place.
