The concept of Deep Listening, as coined by Pauline Oliveros when her nascent Deep Listening Band descended into an underground cistern to perform using the space's 45-second reverb, has become increasingly vital in modern music. She described Deep Listening as "listening in every possible way to everything possible to hear no matter what one is doing".

The first of our Deep Listening workshops for 2020 focuses on located sound, durational music and spatialisation. Leading the workshop: pioneering composer and filmmaker Phill Niblock , acclaimed cellist/composer Julia Kent, located-sound specialist BJ Nilsen,and sound walk guru Tim Shaw.

Through field recording, we'll discover the different layers of sound where you are. We will expand on them, analyse them and give them a voice through recordings and compositions, which will result in individual short sound pieces. Following an introductory session outlining basic principles, the workshop will include active listening assignments and practical exercises, and the exploration of changing soundscapes through walking and listening. Benny will give advice on recording techniques (from monophonic to ambisonic, to contact, hydrophonic and EMF recording techniques), sound manipulation and composition.

This is an online course, but it involves realtime sessions and contact time with your tutor - it's not a "download these videos and watch them at your leisure" type of thing - it's a real workshop with live lectures, individual tuition, assignments and feedback sessions. We've tried to make this remote session as close as possible to the experience of an onsite workshop at CAMP. The course starts on 13/07/2020 and ends on 19/07/2020.
