For Your Ears Only – field recording in & around Sydney
In december 2014, I went on a field recording trip with Dianne Weller in Sydney and the surroundings. This recordings are used in ‘For Your Ears Only’, a radiophonic theatre show. With this work we focus on Sound in all the stages of the creation. Field recordings, foley acting, music and voice enable the audience’s imagination to create an invisible show on an empty stage.
I had a wonderful time, walking around and listening to the environments in Blue Mountains national park, Royal national park and so on. Actually, the 3 weeks were much to short to be able to experience the richness in sound, space and time of the area.
We had good luck meeting Jeremy Hegge, a local field recorder. He introduced me to some really nice spots.
Here’s a small selection of the recordings.
