Noise in a Newsletter

Field Noise Transmissions is a newsletter about the world of sound. It includes commentary and historical perspective on sonic issues in the news, embedded field recordings and other interesting audio tidbits, and discussions of the craft of recording and producing audio—including behind-the-scenes notes on the Field Noise podcast.

Why subscribe?

There is a growing body of academics, artists, activists, and everyday citizens thinking about how sound shapes our collective experiences and impacts human and non-human environments. At the same time, a growing group of producers and storytellers are making digital audio documentaries, especially in the form of podcasts. This newsletter is about the noise in the world, the noise of the sonic media industry, and (sometimes) how those things might be related.
