Sonic Arts Research Centre, QUB
25th March: 2.00pm – 5.00pm
The Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) at Queen’s University Belfast is organising this event which will record sound bites / interviews on the topic of Brexit.
Participants will interview the public on how their lives might change in a post-Brexit UK. In this hands-on workshop, led by led by Franziska Schroeder, attendees will learn to use basic recording technologies (microphones, audio recorders etc). They will then edit the sound recordings on state of the art computer editing suites and compile sound bites into a short piece which will be played back at the end of the workshop. Professional sound artists and engineers will be on hand to support participants and no previous experience is required.
Garret Carr of the Seamus Heaney Centre and the author of The Rule of the Land: Walking Ireland’s Border – a recent BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week – will be helping to facilitate the event. The Irish Independent recently said of Garrett: “he has the eye of a scientist, and a poet’s facility with words.”
