Practice as Research: Creating New Knowledge with Audio Recording and Editing

In this session, Dr. Beck will discuss how artistic practice can generate new scholarly ideas. She will demonstrate her use of binaural audio recording and creative editing that are the tools of her ototheatrical practice.

Dr. Beck’s Projects


Free Online Software

You can find many free recording apps in the Play Store (Android) or the App Store (Apple).

Tools for Purchase

I purchased the Tascam DR-05 and the binaural microphones from an online store called the Sound Professionals. You can also find these products and similar products elsewhere.

The Hook Verse (below) is a set of headphones that can record binaurally with a smartphone. I have not tried these, but they look fun.
