August 2020 Winner
St John’s Theatre, Listowel Youth Theatre
Field recording is the term used for an audio recording produced outside a recording studio, and the term applies to recordings of both natural and human-produced sounds.
In March 2020, the Listowel Youth Drama Class came to an abrupt halt. Covid-19 had forced us all to stay in our homes, go to school online and wait. After a few weeks, we decided to see if the Youth Theatre class could manage online. it was a joy to see so many familiar faces appear on the Zoom screen but not all theatre games can transfer over to online learning so we decided to turn to digital content. The task was to individually create field recordings based on a prompt from the tutor and discussed it with the class. Online we examined recording devices and discussed professional recorders such as an H4n and then what’s in your pocket such as a phone as a recording device. We discussed recording audio — Do’s and Don’t’s and looked at saving MP3 files and WAV files.
After the online class, we recorded 30 seconds of audio and submitted an image with the audio that was our own interpretation of the prompt. This project was designed to keep us in touch with each other and to collectively create digital work together.
