Event description
This live, online workshop will introduce you to audio editing software and show you how to create audio clips from interviews.

About this event

Have you recorded oral history interviews but don't know how to edit them to create clips?

Are your oral history recordings sitting in an archive, not being used?

Have you ever wanted to make use of the recordings for displays or presentations?

If so, this workshop is for you.

This hands-on workshop will:

  • introduce you to audio editing software
  • teach you how to create clips from oral history interviews and sound recordings
  • show you how to remove sounds such as coughs from your excerpt
  • provide ideas about how to use your audio excerpts.

What you need to participate in the workshop:

You will need a computer/tablet with internet connection. It is preferable to have a headset (headphones with microphone), but the headphones and microphone on your device are also sufficient. A mouse will make it easier for your manipulate the audio files, but is not essential.

This workshop uses Audacity software. Audacity is free software for editing audio files. Information about how to install the software will be provided to registrants. Audacity is available for Mac, Windows and Linux computers.

Once you have registered, you will also receive a link to download sample audio files to use at the workshop.

Comprehensive workshop notes will be provided.

Assumed knowledge:

Participants should be confident with basic computer functions e.g. opening files, copying and pasting, and locating files on their computer. No previous knowledge of Audacity software is assumed.

Limited places available:

Please note that places are limited to eight people per workshop. There will be a waiting list in case of cancellations, and if a workshop is oversubscribed, new sessions will be scheduled.

Workshop presenter:

Your presenter is Dr Sally Stephenson (listeningtothepast.com.au). Sally has worked professionally as an oral historian, researcher and writer for more than fifteen years. She has used oral history to produce documentaries, interpretive panels in museums and national parks, heritage walks, and for sound installations in museums. She has also used oral history interviews to provide information about the living history of places for urban renewal and landscape design projects (for example at Tonsley and Bowden in South Australia). She has undertaken projects for Australian Federal and State Government departments, local councils, the State Library of South Australia, the South Australian Maritime Museum, local museums and community groups.

Sally has presented introductory and advanced workshops (in person and online) on a range of topics for Oral History Australia SA/NT, and regularly receives excellent reviews.
