GCLP – A Beginner’s Guide to Field Recording (Three Short films), with OIiver Payne

Tuesday 04th May 2021 - Saturday 31st July 2021

Doors open: 12:00 am

Greensand Country Landscape Partnership (GCLP) are thrilled to commission Field Recording Specialist, Oliver Payne, as part of the Celebrating Greensand Country programme of work.

If you would like to learn more about Field Recording, then why not have a look at the short course Oliver has designed?

The course is split into three short films and everyone is encouraged to take part.

A Beginner’s Guide to Field Recording Part One: Why and What to Listen to

A Beginner’s Guide to Field Recording Part Two: Ways of Recording

A Beginner’s Guide to Field Recording Part Three: Recording with your phone &what to do with your recordings

The course has been specially designed to ensure that as many people as possible are able to take part and that sounds are able to be collected on technology widely available to most – such as mobile phones.

We hope once you have taken part in the short course that you will embark on your own sound collecting journey.

As part of this journey we also ask you to send your collected sounds to sounds@greensandcountry.com to help us build ‘The Greensand Country Sound Archive’. Sounds are being collected by Oliver throughout May and June 2021.

The beginnings of The Greensand Country Sound Archive was recorded over four days in March and April 2021, with Oliver collecting sounds including bird song, wind turbines, underwater trickling of the River Flit, creaking trees and much more.
