The Field Recording Clash: Place v Plasticity

Quarrymill in Scone Perthshire copyright © Olsen 2020

‘Gwaith Sŵn’s Sonic Dart broadcasted an example of the Quarrymill soundscape alongside other artist’s work, on Resonance FM on the 1st March 2021. They discussed the contrasting approaches of using field recording as located sound (place), and field recording as sonic material (plasticity). I found it really interesting to listen to the different ways artist use soundcapes. If your curious they recorded the show which can be herd on Mixcloud on the link below
