SARU presents The Sound Diaries Symposium 2013 which boldly asks “How are we using field recordings to change the world?”

3rd – 4th June 2013
Oxford Brookes University
Headington Hill Campus
Oxford

Over two days contributors from around the world will address how field recording practices have multiplied and diversified in response to increasingly affordable recording gear, developments in software, changes in how field recordings can be shared online, and evolving cultural theory. As field recording intersects with other disciplines – radio-making; composition; social sculpture; ethnography and the preservation of heritage, so do new frameworks for sharing sounds emerge. At the Sound Diaries 2013 symposium a diverse range of speakers including representatives from Sound & Music, The British Library, The Pitt Rivers Museum and Radio 4′s recently commissioned “Noise: A Human History” series will share different perspectives on contemporary field recording practices within these terms.

ear

Themed panels include: Social relations explored through sonic praxis; Field recordings and education; Listening to the past; Can we really change the world with field recording?; The global picture; Radio and social change; Composition and field recording; and Mapping the field.
