Would you like to learn how to create an archive of sounds that represent your neighborhood? By thoughtfully listening to the people and the ecosystem (natural and human-made) of our neighborhoods, as well as the culture at large, we can gain deep insights into our roles as members of our communities. Documenting sounds can give us a rich sense of learning, discovery, belonging, and purpose. Lavender Suarez will lead a media workshop featuring basic audio recording techniques (known as field recording) to assist you in becoming a sonic explorer in your neighborhood. The workshop will feature a meditative sound bath, and participants will help gather an archive of sounds, which will be accessible on the MoMI website.
