The Imitation Archive: Field Recording in the Digital Age

Matt Parker

Award-winning sound recordist and composer Matt Parker has been at TNMOC recording the sounds of seven decades of computing for The British Library sound archive and to create a new musical composition. His talk will include live demonstrations and a premiere of excerpts of his recent compositions.

"The first rule of listening according to the pioneering soundscape composer R Murray Shafer is “if you can't hear it, be suspicious”. I will be discussing the process and techniques of high fidelity digital field recording and will explain how sound can help us understand our evolving cultural landscape," said Matt Parker.

See The Imitation Archive for more details.
