South Hill Park Arts Centre is based in a large Georgian mansion house, 25 miles West of London, in Berkshire, UK
In Autumn this year, the media lab at South Hill Park, UK hosted the “Digital Developments” season of creative technology workshops.
Sound artist, Janek Schaefer led a weekend workshop with the title “Found Sound Stories” where he introduced participants to his way of working with vinyl, found sounds, field recordings, digital effects and looping.
The participants spend two days recording and playing with sound manipulation techniques on a large array of devices, ending with the series of duo and trio performances which were recorded to make up the first half of this programme.
Further pieces were contributed after the weekend from Thea Stallwood, Felicity Ford and Margaret Marks. The opening and closing sections of this programme are compositions by Janek Schaefer, made during and shortly after the weekend.
