Field Recording Workshop: "Movement of acoustic images"

@ Live!iXem 2010 - Edition VII
International festival of music, mixed media and experimental electronic art

Aims of laboratory

•    Explore through the knowledge of digital recording techniques the
universe sound belonging to the "places";
•    Discuss some aspects of the use of specific material in electronic and
instrumental composition.

Localization of sound in the environment focuses on the theme "sound
mapping" as a social and cultural identity and, at the same time, an
expression of conscience and personal feelings, whereas its use in music
opens important interdisciplinary horizons.

The workshop's aim is to provide an introduction to theory and practice of
the main mobile sound recording techniques and the use of sound sources in
different fields, from sound design to cinema, from digital editing to the
use of digital sources in instrumental composition, electronic music and
live electronics. Music compositions and musical excerpts from field
recordings will also be introduced, listened and discussed. All members are
invited to participate in the soundwalk along the neighborhood "Isola" in
Milan and thus contribute during the workshop to the creation of a small
sound map of the place. The pieces obtained at the end of the workshop will
be diffused through a multi-channel audio speakers setup and then available
to the public in the form of soundscape composition.

Speakers: Alessandro Massobrio, Fabio Orsi, Natasha Barrett
Curated by Matteo Milani, Federico Placidi (U.S.O. Project) and Domenico
