On Saturday, December 11 at 8 PM, Phonography Austin will present its fourth annual report at a live event of performances by Phonography Austin members, co-sponsored by the Church of the Friendly Ghost, at CRASHBOX, 5305 Bolm Rd. #12, Austin, TX 78721. Admission will be $7. Masks will be required for entry.
Artists performing will be Sarah King/Zach Smith, Megan Gette/Harrison Montgomery, Amanda Brannin, R. Lee Dockery/T Putnam Hill/Sean O’Neill, Las Raras, and Bricoleurs.
The release will coincide with the release of the annual report compilation for free on Bandcamp at phonographyaustin.bandcamp.com, showcasing the work of local field recordists to capture and recontextualize a diversity of acoustic environments.
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.
