Abstract

Composers of electro-acoustic music have long relied on field recording to capture source materials for processing and mixing, incorporating these into their compositions and sound-design libraries. Recent technological advances in high-quality, multichannel field recording have afforded unprecedented opportunity to capture surround audio content in high definition. In this paper, we discuss a recent experience in field recording, incorporating a discussion of aesthetic and practical issues afforded by these new technologies.
