Sounds, Stories & Springtime


An Audio Retreat

In May, 2012, we held our first audio retreat, with participants coming from all over the country. We experimented with a wide variety of microphones and honed our skills as audio story-tellers.

A highlight was Steve Gorn – a master of the Bansuri flute, and Tim Hill – a master multi-tonal singer, performing in a local cave – a place with extraordinary acoustical properties.

Some comments from our participants:

“Enjoyed it; full, ‘educative’ and welcoming weekend”

“A great, diverse group!”

“Appreciated the focus on listening”

“A new sense of creativity with sound;
not afraid to experiment now!”
