GUIDELINES

Pick two or three pieces to talk about in 10 minutes.

You can attempt to listen through a particular mode :  distracted, reduced, causal, semantic etc. as in the exercise from a few weeks ago.

Speak to the technical / material / machinic qualities of the recording – everything from the mode of recording to the file format (and level of compression) to all the manipulations which take place in the recording itself: editing, compression, EQ, mixing, overlaying etc.

(Think back to our discussion of machined sound as well, for more references.)

If the recordings in question are field recordings,  you can refer back to the second project (under “questions to ask yourself”) as guidelines for questions to ask of the pieces you’re listening to.
