From the event:
“On Saturday, December 8, Phonography Austin will host its first annual report, a listening event and album release party at Cloud Tree Studios & Gallery to showcase the work of local field recordists to capture and recontextualize a diversity of acoustic environments.
Austin-based artists R. Lee Dockery, Vanessa Gelvin, Travis Putnam Hill, Neal Johnson, Alex Keller, Sean O’Neill and Josh Ronsen will present field recordings they made individually over the past year and then join for a collective performance to conjure a phantasmic soundscape through the collaging of their discrete recorded materials. The event also marks the digital release of Phonography Austin’s second compilation, which includes recordings made in 2018 by 12 local artists.
The Phonography Austin 2018 Annual Report is part of the sound arts organization’s ongoing program of educational workshops and listening experiences designed to foster artistic investigation of sound environments, acoustic phenomena and other aural situations through the practice of field recording. The annual report audience is encouraged to attempt to listen to the recordings presented as sound objects in and of themselves—or to embrace the sense of place and context as it occurs in the recording.”
