New England Phonographers Union


The New England Phonographers Union is a fluid congregation of sound artists and location recordists who work with untreated and unprocessed recordings of the rich and varied sounds around them. Through the exploration and documentation of spaces and events, the Union captures auditory phenomena otherwise lost, and in performance reimagines and recontextualizes the particularity of individual places. Within a focused listening environment the members present their recordings both individually and as collaborative improvisations. The project is loosely modeled after the Seattle Phonographers Union, which was founded in 2002 and has spawned like-minded groups in New York, Chicago, London, and Montreal.
