Field recording, in all its forms, has been through incredible creative growth in the last few decades and yet its essential power to engage us in the act and art of listening remains inextricably linked to its subtle simplicity, its ability to make us listen ever more closely to the world in which we move by making us stop for a time.... In this second edition of....A Quiet Position we find pieces that explore quietude, audible silence, active listening, compositional line, performance documentation and more. In gathering these pieces together for you, the intention was to present what could only ever be a small sample of some of the ways in which field recording and an active approach to listening as part of the finished work has developed and informed explorative music in recent years. Each piece stands on its own of course, however there is something additional to be gained by listening to the entire gathering of work in one continuous experience - as when ‘out in the field’, one’s ears begin to yield more and more.... – Jez riley French, October 2011

....A Quiet Position is an ongoing series of gatherings focusing on listening, often through work that involves field recording. Its first edition took as its inspiration FIELD FEST (Bruxelles, October 2011) curated by Q-02/Sounds Of Europe and can be downloaded for free at:
