Tomorrow: my first major field recording session in a while. I’m excited to get outdoors to discover this new place and pleased to get out from behind a camera, something which seems to take up more of my time these days.
So, got the trusty old gear together along with a brand new DAD6001 for one of my DPA 4060’s, very kindly sent out by Ralph at Sound Network as a replacement for a faulty unit…and various dry bags!
I’ll be logging my recordings on an iPad mini, so will take some snaps if anything unusual turns up, but this is the first of several sessions in Shipley over the coming weeks for an ‘audio tour’ that I’m producing, so will write more as the project starts to come together.
At last, All Other Things Being Equal is set to open on 1st December 2012 and will run until 2nd June 2013.
The exhibition is a based on the research and work of scientist and photographer Johan Oldekop, including sounds by me. For this exhibition I have attempted to create an immersive quad channel sound piece that aims to place the listener on the fragile line between two very different, yet very connected, sonic environments. To get an idea of the kinds of sounds that I recorded on location and that have made the final mix, check out my project page.
