These shows have been produced by Felicity Ford and Valeria Merlini, with input, recordings and mixes from participants in the Documenting Sound workshop. The first show reflects on recordings created at Audiograft 2011, and the recordings created during the Tuned City Festival in Tallinn, 2011 – in which Felicity and Valeria first worked together. This show gives some context and theory to contextualise the second show, which is the product of the Documenting Sound workshop held at Audiograft 2012 by Ford and Merlini, building on the pair’s previous experiences of producing radio together in Tallinn.

The Documenting Sound workshop held during Audiograft 2012 explored the role of the field-recordist in the documentation of soundart events. The focus throughout the workshop was on the craft of field-recording; the relationships between soundart sounds and the ambient sounds of surrounding environments; the acoustics of performance spaces; the sounds of performers and audiences; and the relationships between sites and sounds. It is hoped that together these shows document not only the happenings at Audiograft 2011 and 2012, but reflect also an ongoing investigation into sonic documentation.

Many recordings created during Documenting Sound can additionally be heard on the Sound Diaries website, also run by SARU.
