Fieldwave event in London – field recordings / deep listening

Be the first to favourite this.

A deep listening event bringing together a new wave of artists with field recording at the heart of their work, coinciding with the release of Fieldwave on Nonclassical and presented in association with Nature Unwrapped, a year-long series of events from Spiritland neighbours Kings Place.

Hosted by Fieldwave curator Nick Luscombe, the event features talks, playbacks and appearances from Kate Carr, Iain Chambers, Dave Bamford, For Now and live performance from Tuulikki Bartosik on accordion.

The release – out on cassette and digital – reflects ‘a burgeoning area of sonic creativity that has gone from a very niche area of sonic art to something much more commonplace’.

It has been compiled by Nick Luscombe, Nonclassical A&R. Writing about Fieldwave, he says, ‘This rapidly expanding social phenomenon is exciting in that it both democratises the art of composition – with minimal barriers to capturing and creating new work “in the field”- and challenges how we view today’s role of a composer.’

Get behind the microphone to discover how one makes compelling audio recordings that engage both armchair listeners and those of us out and about on foot. We are delighted to have brought together four creatives who have travelled to remote places, revealed hidden histories, and captured the soundscapes and voices of past and present, to enable us to sit back in comfort or stride forward to listen to what is unseen.

Immersive sound walks have been around for a few decades, enjoyed by individual listeners or in small groups of listeners. Award-winning author and radio producer, Horatio Clare teaming up with the BBC, has hugely increased the audience for sound walks. His narrative combined with quality soundscapes recorded on foot in remote areas, has generated hundreds of thousands of new listeners to a phenomenon know as "Slow Radio".
