From my point of view the field recording competition was a lot of fun, so my question to you: would you be keen if I made it a monthly event? For example, each month I choose a prop (with your suggestions welcome) and anyone can submit a single field recording of it. Then at the end of each month I will choose say five favourite recordings & provide a HISSandaROAR library as a prize.
If enough people are keen I will start it as a monthly event, so please comment to encourage the idea (note new commenters your comment wont appear until I approve it the first time)
I think the constraints are valuable as a learning tool, and it is fascinating to hear what people manage to capture AND to read their thoughts on the process…
What do you think?
