STEIM, in partnership with the Geluid van Nederland project, presents a workshop addressing the creation, consumption, and reappropriation of field recordings.
For this 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.
The workshop comes out of ideas from the short essay ‘The Grain of the Auditory Field’ which addresses why many field recordings fail to capture the imagination of the listener.
