Phonography Austin will present a free workshop on the technical theory and practice behind creative field recording. No previous experience is required. Participants should bring something to write with, headphones and a sound recording device of any kind. Use something you already have or can easily borrow.

Participants will spend some time discussing the science involved in making recordings, and break for a field recording scavenger hunt. After that we will meet to review the recordings and discuss any specific insights or technical issues that may have arisen.

The workshop will happen in Room 621 of the Austin Central Library at 710 W. Cesar Chavez St, from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, May 19, 2018, and will be led by sound artist Alex Keller.
