This one-day workshop at APT Gallery is led by Iris Garrelfs and will provide you with an introduction to exploring site specificity through sound, as a sense, a socially engaged method for exploring sites and communities, and an artistic medium. You will prioritise your ears through exercises and a sound walk, and explore how one can collect, curate and communicate site. Collecting site may include recording environmental sound, interviews, or sounding architecture; curating site looks at creating a unified work from the material; and communicating site explores strategies to employ in site-specific performance or installation.
This workshop will focus on the aspect of collecting site, firstly by familiarising ourselves through listening, then recording interviews, environmental sound, collecting objects and other materials. We will briefly look at curating and communicating site.
