a great turnout for our first meeting, and plenty of enthusiasm for future activities. requests have been made in future for a contact microphone building workshop, and an explanation of binaural recording/listening, and hence the intricacies of how the brain and body physically process directional sound information. if there are any experts that would be interested in making that presentation, please get in touch!
this time we met with anthea caddy and felicity mangan for a guided tour through the australian sound art scene, exploring the role environment plays in the creative realm via the long wire recordings of alan lamb, the industrial field recordings of camilla hannan, the spatial interventions of eamon sprod, and many more. we also learned that koalas are not as cute and cuddly as we thought. our australian tour took most of the meeting, so we only took a brief look at some revenant:sound materials, but that's a topic we can return to at a later date.
a few pics from our first meeting below, care of mari jõgiste. the next meeting will be on the last wednesday of this month, april 28th, at 6pm. we will be announcing shortly who our guests will be.
