Introduction to sound recording and editing


Friday, October 28, 2016 - 12:00 to 14:00
Shahrzad Arshadi

This workshop is a hands-on training session where you will learn how to use an audio recorder (either an Edirol or a Zoom) and to record the best quality sound as possible in the context of an oral interview project. You will also learn how to transfer your recordings to a computer, and how to use Audacity (a free sound software) to edit in single and multi-track mode. By the end of the workshop, you will be ready to start creating your own audio or radio pieces.

Please note that given the nature of this workshop, we will accept a maximum of 12 participants, and give priority to COHDS affiliates. Non-affiliates will be able to register one week before the workshop if there are seats left. Thank you for your understanding, and for honouring your commitment if you register.

Shahrzad Arshadi, a Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist and human rights activist, came to Canada as a political refugee on December 24, 1983. In the past two decades, Shahrzad has ventured into different fields of photography, film, sound and performance, enabling her focus on issues of memory, culture and human rights. In 2011 Shahrzad wrote and directed an experimental sound theater performance called: “It Is Only Sound That Remains” based on the life of Ziba Kazemi. Her latest creation in 2015 is a documentary film, “Dancing For Change”, about secular and socialist women of the Middle East, their ideals, activism, and visions for a better world.
