The « Sound Postcard » masterclass will record a subjective geographic reading of the town centre of Aix-en-Provence. The participants will be introduced to classical field recording techniques (microphones, digital recorders), as well as to other uses of them using electromagnetic sensors and contact microphones.
This workshop will include commented listening sessions, sound promenades and other listening exercises inspired by the teaching of R Murray Schafer, the initiator of the « soundscape » concept. There will also be a workshop to make contact microphones that the participants will be able to keep.
A group improvisation session will conclude this masterclass on Saturday 12 June at the Vasarely Foundation.
