with Derek Holzer (US/D)
and with students of Raivo Kelomees at the Media Art Department of EKA
January 17-21  2011

This workshop focused on building listening skills necessary to engage with sound in the urban context. The first day of the workshop was spent listening to a selection of field recordings from different locations around the world and analyzing what kind of information was communicated about the places they were recorded. The second and third days focused on recordings the participants made, using the same “blind listening” techniques to critique how well they communicated a sense of place. On the final day, students presented short compositions using the field recordings in an end-presentation.
