Audio is a powerful medium for capturing human experience and human expression. In the context of cultural sustainability efforts, audio is an extremely useful tool for documenting local knowledge, exploring values and perceptions, and building resources for understanding and supporting cultural practices.

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. The workshop will feature the TASCAM DR-40 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, the workshop will also cover the selection and purchase of professional digital audio recording gear.

Each workshop is limited to 15 participants and the registration deadline is May 6. Registration form is available on line at, or register by calling (802) 388-4964.
