You will use at least four microphones and two different recorders. Make 6-8 recordings for each one you need to describe the follow four things on the recording. Use the recording as an opportunity to narrate your investigation of the tool.

1. Describe on tape the tools your are using for the particular recording – models and manufacturers.

2. Describe the environment you are in (at least one recording needs to be done outside). Be sure to try and give the size of the environment, width, depth, height. Also describe the surfaces of walls, floors, ceilings.

3. Play with microphone to subject distance (how close or far away from your mouth the microphone is).

4. Play with loudness of your voice. You should do this at different subject to microphone distances.
