Hi Folks,

Following is a cross-posting from the Nature Sounds Society list. 
There are two upcoming California events, a half-day "Tech Talk" on 
May 18th in San Francisco and the 18th annual Field Recording 
Workshop in the Sierra mountains. This 3-day event runs June 21-23.

The Nature Sounds Society is offering Tech Talk 2002 on Saturday, May 
18th. While this class is aimed at recordists with intermediate to 
advanced experience, beginners are also welcome and will benefit from 
the discussions. Attendees will receive information on basic audio 
and signal flow, microphone selection, proper microphone usage, and 
on how to avoid common mistakes. This session is excellent 
preparation for the 18th Annual Field recording Workshop coming up 
June 21-23 since it will give you a chance to ask the experts not 
only about field recording but post-production techniques.

Tech Talk 2002 will be held at the San Francisco laboratory of noted 
sound designer, engineer and inventor, Dan Dugan. The class will be 
from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The cost is $15 for NSS members and $20 
for non-members. For additional information, email 
 or call the Oakland Museum at (510) 238-7482.

The NATURE SOUNDS SOCIETY is now accepting applications for the 
Eighteenth Annual Field Recording Workshop June 21 - June 23. The 
workshop is an opportunity to learn about nature sounds recording and 
the use of a variety of equipment during daily sessions in the field 
with experienced recordists. We will have early morning field 
recording session both Saturday and Sunday mornings in a number of 
environmental settings. This is an excellent opportunity to talk shop 
with the pros and seek their advice. In addition, there are short 
educational segments and evening presentations. Our speakers this 
year will be Frank Dorritie, the chair of the Department of Recording 
Arts at Los Medanos College and who has just written a new book "The 
Handbook of Field recording"; Jonathon Storm who has been a nature 
recordist since 1984 and has published eleven albums under EARTHTUNES 
series; and Guy Oliver, the Research of the Oceanic Society, who is 
an expert on the effect of sound on marine animals as well as their 
use of sound. We will also receive a technology update from Dan 
Dugan, noted sound designer, engineer and inventor. Sunday morning we 
will receive an update on the policies and efforts to preserve the 
natural soundscape from Judy Rocchio, Regional Soundscape Program 
Manager for the National Park Service and Karen Schambach, Founder 
and President of the Center for Sierra Nevada Conservation and also 
the California Coordinator for Public Employees for Environmental 
Responsibilities (PEER).

The workshop will be held at the San Francisco State Field Campus 
near Yuba Pass just northwest of Truckee, California. The workshop 
will start Friday evening, June 21, and end noon Sunday, June 23. The 
cost is $175 for members, $200 for non-members which includes a one 
year membership in the Nature Sounds Society. For additional 
information, email  or call the Oakland Museum 
at (510) 238-7482.
