Hi all, as it happens I'm in the process of putting together a 4x1 hour radio mix/documentary about field recordings for my local community radio station (RTRFM in Perth, Australia). I'm most interested in people taking field recording in new directions, conceptually shifting away from that banal cliche of the lonesome dude who retreats from the city to stick his mic out somewhere exotic and touristy. These articles in the Wire, one by Salomé Voegelin and one by Derek Walmsley, best describe my grievances with the culture of field recording today. Maybe I'd share some field recordists doing really interesting things? Maybe you can share some with me?
