Welcome to Sounds of Europe, a platform for field
recording. The blog of the website will travel to a different European country
every month where a local organisation or artist will be responsible for
maintaining it. Each country´s particular context and practices with regards to
field recording will be explored and presented in a personal way.
Dieter van Dam is a teacher at the Rits art school Radio department in Brussels. He has followed the Field Fest closely as his students were making a report of each night.
For Radia, a worldwide network of alternative radio stations, he has made a review of the Field Fest for which he has asked to the participating artists a ‘final Field Fest souvenir’ and mixed them with recordings from the festival itself.
Listen here to this collected memory:
