This field recording special of Caught by the River‘s fanzine ‘An Antidote to Indifference’ is guest edited by Cheryl Tipp, Curator of Natural Sounds at the British Library’s Sound Archive. The issue features, amongst others, some fantastic Women working within the field, including Felicity Ford, Elin Øyen Vister, Daniela Cascella, La Cosa Preziosa and Amy Liptrot.
Cheryl writes: “Earlier in the year I was invited by Caught by the River to guest edit a special field recording edition of their fanzine, An Antidote to Indifference. The plan was to cover as many aspects of field recording as possible and give a broad overview of the current goings-on in this fascinating community. After spending a few months gathering mostly unique works from a variety of field recordists, sound artists and writers all engaged in their own ways with this diverse genre, I’d like to think that this has been achieved. Wildlife recording trips, urban soundscapes, sound maps, installations and personal reflections on recording experiences and the importance of listening are some of the topics covered. These pieces sit alongside a range of reviews, interviews, blog posts and other snippets of news.” Purchase a copy here here here ….& while you’re at it, check out the British Library’s fascinating Sound and Vision blog or more from Cheryl Tipp via twitter @CherylTipp.
