The American Society for Acoustic Ecology presents a hands-on Field Recording Workshop in conjunction with the Balance/Unbalance 2015 Conference.

The goal of the workshop is to offer participants a hands-on experience of soundscape recording in a natural environment, while learning about the field recording practices of master artists, and participating in a conversation and skill-share with the artists and other participants around the techniques and philosophy of field recording. 

The workshop will take place on March 25-26 in Tempe, Arizona.  It will be led by three working artists, each with a significant and unique practice in field recording. The site of the hands-on session is the Beaver Creek Experimental Watershed at sunrise, 90 minutes north and east of Tempe.  More information and example recordings from the site can be found here.
