Field Recordings

Field Recordings / New Music for Mindful Music Moments

The Field Recording Project is a 2021 commission for four contemporary musicians, Jennifer Howd & Ben Sloan, Christa Ebert/Uno Lady and Liz Wu, to create six short pieces of new music, with accompanying videos, that feature Field Recordings (audio from sounds of real spaces and places) and music to evoke a sense of place and to re-contextualize sound as sort of aural symphony.

Additionally, students are encouraged to create their own Field Recordings, to be shared in an App that can geo-locate where the Field Recording/Music was made. We paretnered with Liz Wu, of Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra's Sound Discoveries, to provide students with a lesson plan on how to capture sound from the environment and how to create their own compisition in Garage Band. Student submissions will be considered for inclusion in the national Mindful Music playlist for the last weeks of school.
