Starting at 2pm on Tuesday 5th July, running through to Thursday 7th July 2011 (ending 9pm), this colloquium is on current practices of sound work which incorporate field recording as part of the process and the sonic material of the medium. Our aspiration is to foster a forum for artists to openly share and explore their practice and to develop the discourse and theorization germane to this expansive interdisciplinary field.
Full Schedule here
- rationale (including dogma and personal agendas)
- methods (be that tacit, decisive or strategic)
- fieldcraft insights, anecdotes and best practice
- conceptual frustrations
- ethical dilemmas
- technological fetishes
- virtues and shortcomings of the medium
- alignment with lineages, traditions and precursors (acoustic ecology, architectural practice, documentary, education, ethnography, experimental music, fine art, fluxus, natural history recording, sound design…)
- other issues that come to bear on the making and articulation of practice
Phonography Colloquium follows on from SPR’s Art and Soundscapes series in 2009 which hosted presentations by Peter Cusack, Barry Truax and Hildegard Westerkamp.
We have a fascinating line up of presentation and performances developing, plus an early morning soundwalk of Deptford.
