    Phonography seminar in Barcelona (led by Gilles Aubry)

    The practice of phonography and the politics of sounds. A theoretical and practical introduction to working with field recordings.
    - led by Gilles Aubry

    During this seminar, we will study the social dimension of sound
    production and reception, an area that could be described as the
    politics of sound. From this perspective, the process of selection of
    both the situation and object of recording is understood as significant
    and raises questions like what is being recorded, who is documenting
    it, when is it happening, what is being listened to and what is not.

    The seminar will provide a basic introduction to field recording
    practices and techniques, from a perspective that understands this
    practice in a context between ethnographic research, musical
    composition and sound art. The practical part, will include recording
    sessions on locations chosen by the participants. The collected audio
    material will then be evaluated in group listening and discussion
    sessions and edited into short compositions, audio essays or

    Participants need to bring a laptop, their editing software of
    preference and headphones. Recording devices and microphones will be
    available, though participants are encouraged to bring their own.
