This two-day symposium seeks to open up and explore the practice, art and craft of field recording through a series of panel presentations, listening sessions and screenings.
Starting from the early days of field recording, In the Field aims to relate the multitude of contemporary field recording practices to their historical precedents and investigate issues in contemporary practices. These include: How field recordings are distributed to and heard by an audience; Recording the unheard; Mapping the urban; and questioning the extended nature of the field in a digital networked landscape.
Speakers include Chris Watson, Jana Winderen, Felicity Ford, Mark Peter Wright, Udo Noll and many more. For everyone with an interest in field recording, whether professional or personal
