STEIM, in partnership with the Geluid van Nederland project, presents a series of workshops addressing the creation, consumption, and reappropriation of field recordings.
The Geluid van Nederland project is a collaborative effort between Kennisland, De Auditieve Dienst and the Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid to crowdsource a massive online archive of field recordings. The archive will be sustainably preserved and available for free use by artists. Visit http://www.geluidvannederland.nl/ for more information and to upload sound material of your own.
We are very happy to be able to offer these workshops which present three artists’ unique approaches to listening, production, and artistic reuse. They are offered at a considerably discounted cost. Registration can be made via steim.org. Please sign up soon, as space is very limited!
NOV10-12 SUBTLE LISTENING W/ KIM CASCONE
For this first edition of the series we are happy to invite composer and producer Kim Cascone from San Francisco to lead a 3-day workshop on subtle listening.
The Subtle Listening workshop is a three day workshop for people who work with sound to help sharpen their listening skills. Through guided meditation, listening exercises, and a field recording project participants will learn a toolkit of techniques they can use any time to help heighten their sensitivity to the sounds of their immediate environment.
NOV29-DEC1 PROCESSING FOUND SOUND W/ ROBERT HENKE
We welcome electronic musician, producer, and sound artist Robert Henke (Monolake) back to STEIM to give a 3-day workshop on the technical aspects of field recording, from capturing sound, to production and performance.
JAN19/JAN26 COMPOSING AUDIOTOURS W/ ARNOUD TRAA
In this third workshop of the series, sound designer and founder of de Auditieve Dienst, Arnoud Traa, will lead participants in the composition of audiotours. Audiotours are site-specific soundscapes that tell a unique perspective of a place.
