Live Stage: The Art of Field Recording [us NYC]

derek_holzer_02.jpgSoundTransit: The Art of Field Recording :: Derek Holzer :: April 21-22, 2010; 6:30 – 9:30 pm :: Harvestworks, 596 Broadway, Suite 602, NYC.

Field recording, or phonography, is the art of recording sounds as they are found “in situ”, rather than those created in a studio or concert hall. There are as many ways of approaching field recording as there are field recordists, with interests ranging from recordings of natural or urban environments to improvised situations or soundwalks to the resonance of solid objects or the Earth’s atmosphere.

The first session of this workshop provides a theoretical introduction to the various microphone techniques and recording strategies used for field recording, as well as special tools which allow phenomenon such as physical motion, electromagnetic waves and light can also be converted into sound. This will be followed by a night-time recording excursion into the city. Continue reading

Breaking In the Violin

violins.jpgImage: thanks to 8note.com From: Using an Electronic Device to Break in a New Violin by Kevin Delaney :: Published: April 4, 2010 in the New York Times:

…. Musicians have long known that the more a stringed instrument is used, the more responsive and resonant it becomes. But for those who cannot afford a vintage violin, cello or guitar and who lack the patience to wait years for the tone of a new one to develop, there is an electronic humming device.

The ToneRite slips over the strings of an idle instrument and begins emitting subsonic noise that is intended to mimic the physics of actual music making. The result, the maker claims, is a greatly accelerated breaking-in period. ….

Jeffrey Zeigler, a cellist with the Kronos Quartet, thinks it simulates heavy playing. “Unfortunately, it doesn’t simulate practice,” he said. “You still have to do that yourself.” More here.
