SFCA [isaw+subtropics] presents acclaimed sound artists David Dunn, Russell Frehling and Gustavo Matamoros in a two-day, problem-solving, audio recording workshop intended for sound artists and audio professionals
As part of this workshop, David Dunn will described and discussed a number of microphone setups for stereo and surround recording with a slide presentation
The guest sound artists will then device recording strategies for documenting sound pieces in three different spaces, Project924 (LISTEN Exhibition), Studio 209 (Microcosmos), and Audiotheque, using a variety of microphones and microphone patterns as appropriate for each room. The results will be compared and discussed
David Dunn is a composer who prefers to lecture and engage in site-specific interactions or research-oriented activities. Over the past 40 years, his work has explored the liminal spaces between music and language, mind and environment, and art and science. In recent years he has largely abandoned the pursuit of musical composition as an expressive force to investigate the potential of sound to directly alter biological systems and to design listening strategies and technologies for environmental sound monitoring in both aesthetic and scientific contexts. He is Assistant Professor of Sound Art and Design in the UC Santa Cruz Music Department and core faculty in the Digital Arts and New Media graduate program
Russell Frehling is a composer and sound artist born in Miami with an international reputation. He was awarded the Reiner Prize for music composition from Brandeis University where he received his B.A. in 1974. Following a period of independent study with Pauline Oliveros and Morton Feldman he was invited to the Center for Contemporary Music at Mills College earning an M.F.A. in Electronic Music and Recording Media under Robert Ashley and David Behrman. On grants from several ecological organizations, Frehling spent two winters in Iki, Japan developing an underwater sound system designed to alleviate the conflict between dolphins and fishermen competing for the same resources. Frehling’s own work continues to develop from his concern with the direct and real-time experience of sounds on their own terms, as unique physical entities occupying space as well as time. He has lately concentrated on large scale sound installations for a variety of architectural and natural settings
