Field Recording workshop in the Olympic Park with Matt Parker

Join Art for the Environment artist Matt Parker on a sonic journey through the Olympic Park, using techniques including field-recording and meditation as a way to engage with our surroundings and environment. The workshop will begin with a warmup and short meditation. At the park participants will use field-recorders to explore their surrounding environment, listening to pre-recorded sounds and capturing their own unique sounds to share with the group later. The workshop will close with a group discussion and sharing session, and a final Sonic Meditation.
