The Field Recording Show is a programme exploring the soundscape, recording, listening and composing hosted by Kate Carr and Luca Nasciuti.

This episode focuses on three artists who compose with field recordings. We chat with Liz Helman, François Larini and Nhung Nguyen about their artistic themes, compositional techniques and geographical contexts. These three very different artists work across ambient, drone, noise and music concrète, embracing found sound and techniques of sonic collaging as well as more traditional musical forms. They are based in London, Nice and Hanoi, respectively.

It isn't very often to hear how field recording artists address compositional concerns with their material. Most talk about a kind of diary-making - but it can be so much more than this. This show begins to address these very important concerns - how do you contextualize these field recordings if we are going to use them as sound source materials.
