Soundlab #5 Performing your Field Recordings

In this Soundlab we will investigate and fine tune how to take recordings to a live audience. What makes a recordist a good performer? Where do personal and artistic ambition play? How do you communicate with an audience?

As a point of departure, the participants will need to find out and define for themselves what value and meaning live performance with field recording might have. Next to the obvious motivation of sharing sonorous qualities with an audience, personality and skills make the difference. One can be more a storyteller, an other a biologist. Some will process fiercely while others swear by secure selection and simple playlisting. Others even go to the boundaries of the recognizable look and deform the material to make a new fiction.

This is hosted by Julia Eckhart’s team at Q-02 (www.q-02.be)

13 Feb : On the first day Peter Cusack will share his practices, knowledge and reflections, including his research during his residency, followed by hands-on exercises.

14 Feb : The second day will be guided by Ruben Nachtergaele, participants will be invited to present their own practice in regard to performing with field recording, and discuss each others work, and there will be time for practical exercises.

Inscription required to julia@q-o2.be – 15€ per day, 20€ both days.
