Talk on field recording techniques by sound artist Jez Riley French, Tuesday 8 May at 18.30

Jez Riley French (UK) lectures on his work with field recordings, involving extended techniques, contact microphones, coils, hydrophones, scores for listening/active listening, audible silence and quietude. This is followed by an open discussion/q&a session on the broad subject of field recording – both as a creative practice and the influence it is having on a closer relationship to sound.

"Lydkunstudstillingen Sound Art. Klang als Medium der Kunst er netop åbnet på ZKM i Karlsruhe. Det er den største lydkunstmanifestation på europæisk jord siden sonambiente i Berlin i 2006 og giver et massivt overblik over lydkunstens historie og udtryk netop nu. En stor afdeling har et fokus på Skandinavien. Fantastisk, fortryllende – og problematisk."
