DVD documentation of students workshop with John Grzinich
Location Sound Films

Video installation by John Grzinich

The Location Sound Films project starts with the concept of site-specific artistic activity while integrating contemporary sound recording practices that cross the areas of ‘performance’, ‘field recording’, ‘improvisation’ and ‘documentation’. With the site being the prime focus, the artist as actor and instigator uses the means of sound to investigate the qualities of the surrounding space and his place in it. Various techniques are used to make recordings, some more clearly visible than others, depending on the type of sound captured (stereo condenser microphones or piezo transducer contact microphones). Video in this case correlates more closely with film as it is an attempt to make use of the image as non-narrative document on site-specific, location based sound activity.
