Field Recording

 

This OHC advanced workshop is for adventurers who want to record interviews outside of the controlled studio environment. It provides an overview of field recording concepts, equipment and techniques. You will learn how to listen to outdoor soundscapes before you record and tips for coping with adverse conditions. After this workshop you will know how to go about recording sounds and voices outdoors that will be high quality, and usable in your audio/video storytelling projects.  

 

This workshop is ideal for those who have attended the Digital Audio Recording session of the Introduction to Oral History workshop series or have equivalent experience. Participants should know how to use a digital audio recorder, and how to read levels. This workshop includes an outdoor component and is subject to postponement if there is rain/snow.

 

This workshop is limited to six participants. 

Workshop Fee: $60.00 + GST (less 20% for current OHC Members)

Audio Editing with Audacity

 

If you would like to edit audio but don’t know where to begin this workshop is for you! Useful for anyone who has creative audio ambitions and limited skills, this workshop covers the very basics. With step-by-step instruction, we will work through the steps of importing files, reducing noise, and arranging vocal and musical elements. By the end of the class you will have created a short audio composition.

 

Participants who prefer to bring their own computers should download the free, open-source audio editing software Audacity® before the workshop (via: http://www.audacityteam.org/ ).

 

A limited number of OHC Windows laptops will be available for use during this workshop. Please contact us if you would like us to reserve one for you.
