Participants listen to sounds by the Thames

A series of Masterclasses took place whilst Bill Fontana was in London for the opening of River Sounding. Groups of students and recording enthusiasts had the opportunity to learn more about Fontana's approach and to join him on an excursion along the Thames. Participants could try out some of the techniques that Fontana uses within his own practise and record their own sounds inspired by the river.
