Lecture at Gilded Audio Design

I’m doing a lecture in Brooklyn this week! Hope to see you there:

Zach Poff: Hidden Sounds

Date: June 28th, 2018

Time: 7:00pm

In this talk, Zach will introduce recording techniques using D.I.Y transducers to reveal hidden sounds & sonify non-acoustic phenomena. Together, we will explore contact mics, hydrophones, synesthetic light-to-sound conversion, and electromagnetic pickups. We will listen to examples of sound art, music, and installations where these techniques stretch our ears toward new ways of considering our natural and built environments. These techniques are quite accessible for those with more curiosity than money.  Zach will also share his resources to help you build transducers for your own work.


… and sign up for their email list so you’ll get notified of other lectures in their Extended Techniques series – intending to amplify creative audio production ideas by inviting a progressive artists and engineers to share their knowledge and demonstrate their methods.  Through demonstration and discussion, our featured speakers will open the audience’s minds to new avenues of creation – connecting members of the audio community and fostering an attitude of sharing and co-operative professional development.
