B–CSC WINTER MASTERCLASS: The Art of Field Recording

The Bogong Centre for Sound Culture's masterclass The Art of Field Recording, takes place this winter in the snow-capped Victorian Alps. This five-day intensive masterclass overseen by internationally acclaimed sound artists and recordists Douglas Quin [US] and Philip Samartzis [AU] will be an intense creative experience for all involved. The masterclass will draw on the ground-breaking work Quin and Samartzis have produced in the Arctic and Antarctica to demonstrate technical and creative processes used to register and exhibit the transformative effects of extreme climates upon wilderness ecologies.

During the five-day intensive masterclass participants will live, work and participate in group and individual tuition with two world renown sound recordists. They will learn how to prepare for and undertake deep fieldwork in remote wilderness environments, and their attendant conditions. Practical fieldwork will be complemented by technical demonstrations and conversations focusing on sound recording, compositional methods and analysis, spatial sound techniques, approaches to sound design, and strategies for broadcast and exhibition. Fieldwork will be undertaken at Howmans Gap, and in the spectacular mountain settings of the Bogong High Plains during the winter snow season. This uniquely Australian setting provides a rare pristine environment to experiment with site responsive recording techniques using a broad range of professional equipment supplied by Nagra, Rycote and DPA microphones.

The Art of Field Recording is for anyone aspiring to work at a professional standard as an artist, composer or designer. Whether you are interested in sound art, film design, soundscape composition, acoustic ecology, experimental music, performance, spatial sound or environmental art, this masterclass will significantly enhance your knowledge and practice. You will be working with experienced practitioners who are internationally recognised for their sound art and design, and who possess the understanding and intellectual framework necessary to help you realise your creative and professional ambitions. The techniques you learn during the five-day intensive masterclass will be applicable to all the creative projects you hope to pursue within the fields of contemporary art, sound, music, film and media.  

Fee: $3000

The masterclass is capped to 15 places. The fee includes:
5 days of classes and associated activities
6 nights accommodation plus all meals
