Held in partnership with The Rea Garden, participants were invited to explore sound recording techniques, manipulation, and presentation. The workshop began with a visit to The Rea Garden. Participants collected field recordings, sound objects, and ideas, whilst gaining insight into artist in residence Graham Dunning's work. The site itself is a former industrial unit which lay derelict for 20 years following a fire. As such it contained a wealth of interesting objects, including pieces of broken shellac from its former use as a record warehouse. The workshop then moved to The Lombard Method for an informal exploratory session, in which participants were able to share ideas, and discover new processes through collaborative practice.
