Description of work with field recording
For his records and live performance he is constantly searching new sounds, mainly on-site testimonies, electronic+electromagnetic sounds & field recordings but he is primarily interested in the idea of recording what is not supposed to be : gear failures, the death of a PA systems, electro-static background noises and voltage errors. In 2011 He has started a field recording blog about unusual (field) recordings. http://franciscomeirino.blogspot.com/
