Urban Documents

An artistic field recording workshop with Gilles Aubry

Sound artist Gilles Aubry offers workshop participants a short, practical introduction to field recording. He will also talk about his own artistic practice. Following a short presentation of his work in the current exhibition 'Urban Cultures of Global Prayers', the participants will go about making their own audio recordings of simple day-to-day situations in the immediate vicinity of the NGBK.
After this excursion, the participants will gather back at the NGBK and do some 'collective listening' as well as discussing experiences and results. Aspects of sound production will be discussed, such as: how does the author of the work position themselves? Who is heard? Who is not heard? How can we record the sound of spaces? What is the difference between auditive documentation and classic visual documentation formats?

Workshop for up to 12 participants, free of charge. Registration via
