Sometimes described as “creative field recording,” phonography is a strategy, technique, and a community. Most of what I make, from protest symphonies to found soundscapes is phonography.

To my ears, not all field recordings are phonography, which is rooted in very portable technology and an unusual approach. Phonographers embrace accidents and glitches as well as question received notions of technique and acceptable subject matter.
