Nature Sound Recording for Beginners

Join a friendly group and learn to make sound recordings of birdsong, animal calls and natural atmospheres.

Andrew will outline the equipment required for field recording, both from a technical and hands-on perspective. We will then go out to natural bushland, giving you the opportunity to use, compare and assess different microphones and recorders. While there he will discuss field craft; the skills of how to hear the landscape and best record its many voices. Finally, Andrew will cover the studio aspects of sound editing, documentation, archiving, cleaning up and presenting your valuable recordings.

This will be a participatory workshop designed to give you the knowledge to choose equipment appropriate to your budget and intentions, and the skills to achieve rewarding results.

Equipment will be available, but you are encouraged to bring any recording gear you may have.
