The first workshop of the Sound and Music higher education programme happened at the Purcell Music school in Bushey in April 2014. Really great three days, thanks to everyone who made it happen. I got to spend some time with the tuba player Oren Marshall exploring extended techniques on the tuba, hearing amazing sounds (tuba-flute anyone?!) and experimenting with different microphones/microphone positions. Thanks to Ian and David of Sound Intermedia for their advice on that front. Here’s a couple of pictures from the workshop. Tuba sounds to come soon!
Oh and there was a cat.
