In our class session, I introduced aspects of field recording in early works, such as John Cage and the Barrons' "Williams Mix" and Iannis Xenakis's "Concret PH." I also discussed different techniques used in these two works (Francisco Lopez, "La Selva" and Janet Cardiff, "The Missing Voice"). Finally, I introduced the different uses of soundwalking and field recording in the works of Duncan Speakman, Barry Truax and the World Soundscape Project, Hildegard Westerkamp and the Vancouver Soundwalk Collective, and Annea Lockwood.
