Master class: Building immersive audio walks – from go to whoa!

Event details

14 Oct, 2021 · All day
AUD$ 159.34

If you’re big on oral history and want to know more about situated listening (or locative-audio/audio AR), then please consider joining me for a full day’s Master Class at this year’s oral history conference. These biennial conferences are well organised, intimate events that bring together a range of experts in research, storytelling and academia. Working in teams, we’ll be stepping through everything you need to know to build your own project: from unpacking the new V2 Soundtrails app and platform, to recording and up-loading material, to walking in and out of newly built sound fields across the conference precinct using our mobile phones. Geared to those who have at least a basic level of technical competence, this Masterclass comes at a time of significant reappraisal for the role of audio in engaging a broader public, and the myriad ways mobile phones are now bringing to life the world around us. Hope you can join me.
