Vermont Folklife Center Offering Two Interview/Recording Workshops
The Vermont Folklife Center announces two upcoming workshops as a part of its annual Cultural Sustainability Institute.
Oral History: Community Memory and Passionate Listening
Date: May 9, 2014 Fee: $85.00
This class provides insight into the role of oral history in cultural sustainability, the theories underpinning oral history research, and hands-on training in oral history interview techniques. The class begins with a demonstration interview followed by group discussion of the ethnographic interview process. Attendees will then work as teams to conduct interviews with invited guests using provided digital audio recording equipment. The day concludes with reflection on interviewing and a discussion of project ideas.
Recording Audio for Ethnography and Oral History
Date: June 13, 2014 Fee: $85.00
Attendees will receive a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of digital audio, types of common field-recording microphones, and the use of flash-memory based audio recorders. The workshop includes hands-on exercises with equipment in an actual interview setting. We will use the TASCAM DR-40 and Marantz PMD660 for these exercises, but the fundamental skills demonstrated will be applicable to most currently available digital audio recorders. In addition to the use of this equipment, we will also cover the selection and purchase of professional digital audio recording gear.
