Description of work with field recording
Since 1970 I have been teaching people of all ages to record in the field, from idea phaze to final mix. We developed the "Tape workshop" at Denmark´s Radio where nonprofessionals could produce their own stories for radio, with professionel equipment and coaching. Now I am writing an "audio guide" e-book, blog, where the audio didactic methods we have developed over the past 40 years become accessable to all, with exampels. Working with Freesound.
