Week 1. The Curved Pipe



Field / Recording / Otherness


We’ve been asked by a number of people to make available a list of some of the content utilised during the 2017 module, ‘Field / Recording / Otherness’, which took place at Oxford Brookes University as part of the ‘Approaches to Experimental Composition and Sonic Art’ MA. The lists to come are by no means exhaustive.
