Field Recording at Silo City with Lea Bertucci
Saturday, August 19, 2017, 2–4pm
$7 members / $10 general
Artist and Workspace Resident Lea Bertucci will lead a small class focusing on technical audio recording techniques using a Zoom H6 and equipment from Squeaky as well as creative, lo-fi approaches using microcassette recorders. Microphone types, placement and setting levels would all be discussed. Participants will spend the first half going through recording techniques and overview of gear, with the second half of the class dedicated to participants learning to use their recordings compositionally with mixing stations.
Lea Bertucci is an American composer and performer whose work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice, (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), her work often incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage. Her discography includes a number of solo and collaborative releases on independent labels in the US and Europe, including I Dischi Del Barone, Obsolete Units, Telegraph Harp and Clandestine Compositions.

Initiated in 2016 by Squeaky Wheel Film and Media Art Center in Buffalo, New York, in collaboration with local partners Buffalo Game Space, Buffalo Lab, and Silo City, the residency provides support through equipment, facilities, and technical support for artists experimenting across a range of old and new technologies, such as video, sound, digital platforms, interactivity, virtual reality, and 3D printing. Community outreach and public engagement components include presentation and education activities. More information on the summer 2017 residents can be found here.
