Musical Storms across the North Sea
Storm will be presented in the Rymer Auditorium - the UK's premier listening environment for reproduced sound - providing a fabulous opportunity to experience the work of the world's greatest sound recordists on mastering quality studio loudspeakers and a perfect acoustic environment.
A compact disc version of the Storm project has recently been released on Touch, but the live version in this premier auditorium promises even more.
BBCi said of the CD release: "
there's a brief moment when
it feels like Watson's microphones are under the water. At the finish
I was expecting to open my eyes and find the living room overrun with
seaweed, driftwood and maybe a flock of stormy petrels".
Storm, the concert, is at 7.30pm on Friday 2nd March in the Rymer Auditorium,
University of York.
Chris Watson will also be conducting a location sound recording masterclass at 2.00pm on Thursday 1st March, which is free, but participants must register in advance (and can bring their own recording equipment and recordings if they wish to participate). Later that day, at 7.30pm in the Rymer Auditorium, Chris Watson will present an illustrated talk describing a personal audio perspective of the location recordings and soundtrack production techniques used in works such as Storm, and in his field recordings for the many wildlife productions he has work on.
Tickets are £4.50, or £3.00 if booked with a ticket to Storm
on 2nd March.
