For this month's helikoosolek, as is out wont in summer, we will take a field trip out of our usual seminar room for a foray into technology-less field recording. There is much technology associated with sound and soundwork, but the most important remains the ear. In this meeting we will explore other ways of 'recording' sound, of responding to and interacting with a sonic environment. The recordings we make will be in movement, using our bodies or voices as playback devices, or on paper, as writing or drawing, using a pencil as a needle to record and interpret the vibrations around us.

Please come prepared to spend time outdoors, with appropriate clothing and good shoes. Please also bring writing or drawing materials (pens, pencils, paper, etc). An alternative indoor program will be prepared in case of bad weather. please arrive at ERM on time! We will set off from there shortly after 6pm.

helikoosolek:tartu is a regular gathering for the exploration of sound in all forms. The meetings comprise presentations, concerts, workshops, discussions, and field trips pertaining to sound and its consideration in art, music, architecture, ecology, philosophy, social and cultural interaction, and any other context that presents itself. Participants are encouraged to propose activities or discussions on topics of their interest, or to present projects of their own for feedback. Sessions take place on the last Wednesday of each month, from 6-8pm at the Eesti Rahva Muuseum.

helikoosolek:tartu is organised by MoKS and supported by Eesti Rahva Muuseum, Tartu Linnavalitsus, and Eesti Kultuurkapital.
