About this event

Explore techniques for making and recording unusual sounds in this hands-on workshop led by composer/instrument-builder/field recordist Cheryl E. Leonard. Participants will learn about different types of microphones (including open-air, contact, underwater, and ultrasonic), and conventional and unconventional ways to use them for recording and in live performance. Together, we’ll experiment with a range of playing and miking techniques to uncover unique sounds from natural and manmade found objects, including sounds that are normally inaudible to the human ear. We’ll investigate approaches to playing materials/structures in situ, and assembling objects into “instruments.” Leonard will also share field recording tips and techniques honed from her experiences recording in wilderness areas around the world. All skill levels welcome!
