Sound Camp Soundscape Workshop Intensive
May 4 - 6, 2018
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave, South River
& Warbler's Roost, 3785D Eagle Lake Road, South River

Cost: $100 (or $200 with 2 nights accommodation and breakfast at Warbler's Roost)

After the stillness of winter, springtime in the Almaguin Highlands awakens the ears to a suddenly active soundscape of birds, frogs and the drumming of the ruffed grouse. The first weekend of May at Warbler's Roost (22 KM west of South River) provides an exciting opportunity for nature-lovers, soundscape recordists and birders to enjoy the acoustic wonders of the spring season while learning about the art of soundscape recording.

Over the course of the weekend you will learn how to record, edit and mix natural soundscapes. On the last day you will be part of a team to record the dawn chorus at Warbler's Roost from multiple vantage points, and then afterwards, listen back to the recording at NAISA North Media Arts Centre on a multichannel audio system. In addition there will be other events taking place on the same weekend that workshop participants can attend at NAISA such as a “soundscape dinner in the dark” and an artist talk by Glenn Hubert.
