RECOMMENDED VIEWING: A very cool short documentary directed by Sam Campbell on modern field recordists is now out via The Vinyl Factory and includes appearances by Nabihah Iqbal, Equiknoxx, Lonelady, David Chatton Barker, Lawrence English, Félicia Atkinson, Jonáš Gruska and Cheryl Tipp. Beautifully captured, with musings by each artist about their craft.
The video travels from city streets to canals and deserts – through the cold, heat, and the rain – to catch these sound librarians in mid-process of sound capture.
