On Saturday, December 11 at 8 PM, Phonography Austin will release its fourth annual report for free on Bandcamp, showcasing the work of local field recordists to capture and recontextualize a diversity of acoustic environments.
Austin-based artists are encouraged to submit a recording made in 2021 at https://forms.gle/GgXtBEZwGDU9e6TN8. The deadline for submission is 11/28/2021.
The release will coincide with a live annual report by Phonography Austin members, co-sponsored by the Church of the Friendly Ghost, at CRASHBOX, 5305 Bolm Rd. #12, Austin, TX 78721. Masks will be required for entry.
Phonography Austin’s Fourth 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 listener is encouraged to listen to the recordings presented as sound objects in and of themselves—or to embrace the sense of place and context as they occur in the recordings. This Bandcamp release is Phonography Austin’s fifth compilation release.
