Phonography Austin is dedicated to exploring phonography (the
creation and presentation of field recordings as art objects) and
acoustic ecology (the study of the effects of the acoustic environment
on those living within it).
We are a non-hierarchical collective open to all those who have an
interest in sound and making field recordings. We are open to all
backgrounds of field recordists and levels of experience.
No field recording equipment? Try recording with a cellphone, a
cassette recorder, or an old dictaphone. Listen and repeat.
Field recordists of all backgrounds and abilities are invited to attend
our monthly meetings and events. There is no formal membership and
anyone is free to propose a field recording activity or event for the
collective to work together on.
At our monthly meetings, we may:
- talk about the sounds we heard or recorded
- brainstorm ideas for future events
- discuss some event logistics
- ask each other for field recording advice
- bring up a field recording we heard or a field recording-related
