What are the existing approaches to working with field recordings? What does ‘documentality’ mean in this context? How does documentality intersect in the visual and the audial? What role does editing play, and is a parallel with the same process in filmmaking possible? How do field recordings differ from soundscaping?

How (and whether) composers and sound artists work with practices of listening closely to the urban environment, which have become entrenched in our routines since the beginning of the full-scale invasion?

We focus on the musical and audiovisual projects by the Ukho agency, the diversity of the works of the composer and sound artist Oleh Shpudeiko, the soundscaping of memory and editing of the artist Ian Spektor.
