AWSRG 2017 Biennial Workshop

Australian wildlife sound recording workshop

6th – 11th September, 2017

Camp Cypress, Baradine, NSW.


A week of listening to the natural world – sharing the skills and experience of nature sound recording for a variety of purposes, ranging from scientific research, to artistic responses and simple, personal enjoyment.

Camp Cypress at Baradine is on the edge of the Pilliga forest, the largest expanse of contiguous dry woodland in inland NSW, and a wonderful area for birdlife and wildlife sound recording.

Our workshop will be a week of expert presentations and discussion, covering all aspects of wildlife and environmental sound recording, including:

  • equipment (microphones, recorders etc) and recording techniques,
  • fieldcraft and associated natural history skills,
  • editing, audio processing and archiving,
  • species identification and repertoire,
  • environmental listening and cultural responses

Practical sessions of field tuition and recording opportunities will be scheduled in nearby Pilliga forest and other natural areas.

We look forward to welcoming members and non-members. The week will be a gathering suitable for beginners, field naturalists, student and professional researchers, artists/musicians and anyone interested in engaging with the natural world more deeply through listening.
