Applications are open now.

Landscape - a project by Dutch experimental label Field Records - aims to support the next creative generation in the process of developing their own voice and perspective, enabling new ways of experiencing and interacting with their lived environments. Refuge Worldwide hosts a two-day, Landscape workshop program that focuses on Dutch-German exchange, field recording techniques and storytelling for radio.

Each Landscape workshop hosts approximately 15 participants and will be 6 hours in length (10AM-4PM). Participants are taught the history and basics of field recording, and will hear from an external speaker who integrates field recording in their work. Participants will also actively practice the act of field recording and learn about integrating recorded sounds within the realm of sonic storytelling through digital production processes. The guest speakers for the Berlin edition will be Margaux and Diane Barbé.

Following Landscape workshops in Bogotá, Hanoi, Medellín, Seoul, The Hague and Tokyo across 2023 and 2024, the concept is now brought to Berlin by the Field Records crew of AHPR and Artefakt. As part of Field Records' 15th anniversary, the experimental electronic label has created a tour called Floating World which will touch down in Berlin in June. As well as the workshop program, there will be a Field Records night at Tresor on Thursday June 6th and a Landscape listening session at arkaoda on Sunday June 9th.

The workshop is free of charge and applications are now open.


This program is supported by the Cultural Participation Fund and the Netherlands Embassy in Berlin.
