Sound artist Gilles Aubry will give an introduction about ideas and practices of field recording and artistic research. The participants will go about making their own audio recordings of day-to-day situations within the city of Arles. During collective listening sessions the participants will discuss and share their experiences and interpretations. Beyond merely musical or narrative approaches, other aspects will also be discussed: culturality of listening and sound environments, relationship between a sound source and its acoustic representation, materiality of recorded media, reflexivity of the recording process, etc. The results will be presented to the public at the end of the workshop.
