Brand X is offering a series of training sessions in useful skills for the arts sector. This one is on the art of field recording.

The facilitator will be Alexandra Spence who is an artist and musician from Sydney, Australia. She makes installations, compositions and performances based on (everyday) sound and listening. With an interest in resonance, vibration and everyday sound, her aesthetic favours small sounds, object interventions, and unusual sound sources. Utilising the commonly used Zoom Recorder and also her mobile phone Alexandra will lead you through the intriguing world of field recording through her unique artistic ear, giving you the basics to venture out on your own capturing sounds to be used in a sound design, a piece of music or an artwork. Bring your mobile phone and any other recording equipment you want use.
