ONE OF THE MOST insightful conversations I enjoyed in 2018 came inside 1784, a Third Space of Michelle Gallen. Michelle shared a wide assortment of ideas with me about community, book recommendations, and the status of her stealth project. It's all part of the 15 minute audio recording I shared on Spreaker.
As I explain in the audio recording, I experienced two technical issues when recording my Congversation with Michelle. For some reason, one part of the audio recording was afflicted with a series of irritating clicks. It took me too long to clean the audio file so I cut large parts of it just to get it published. On top of that, I failed to close the audio recording session on the the Sennheiser Memory Mic that I used with Michelle so I had to use just my part of the recording to finish the job. That means I was unable to squelch the noise of the venue so listeners may feel they're inside a snooker hall.
I'm trying to capture 100 Congversations before the November 2019 running of the next Congregation. If you want to be part of the flow, please contact me directly. You'll find me @topgold on all good social networks. I'm trying to produce a two minute video clip as part of every recording session and then upload them into a YouTube playlist. I have to remember to bring my portable lights the next time because Michelle and I met under a stairwell where shadows were prominent.
These Congversations are a learning process for me. I'm trying to use a combination of legacy recording equipment alongside some newer components. I have to validate a mobile journalism workflow for creative media students on the Clonmel Digital Campus of LIT.ie. I also have to experiment with tools that our Youth Media Team can use. Considering the number of errors (many self-induced) that I've made so far, I reckon I will need to perfect the process over time. Hopefully, by the 20th recording session, I'll have a perfect mix.
