blind fields

slavoljub epifanić field recording

“Even as a kid, I loved music and particularly enjoyed when I could listen to music reproduced on high quality equipment. When I became blind, hearing – somehow naturally – became my primary sense and I had no difficulty reaching a decision on pursuing the exploration of sound. Actually, this wasn’t a decision. It simply happened. I have made my first audio recording for the practical reasons. Later on I started “playing” with audio. I became a presenter on a local radio satiation. As soon as I learned about Sound Forge, I wanted to master that software and begun working independently. However, I succeeded in this task only after a few years. Ever since, I have been doing recordings and sound processing, using various devices which grew better and more practical each year. I have completely independently realized my recent radio shows – from recording and processing to a final broadcasting form.”


“Još kao klinac, volio sam glazbu i posebno uživao slušajući je na kvalitetnim uređajima. Kada sam osljepio, nekako prirodno, sluh mi je postao primarno čulo i nije bilo teško donijeti odluku o bavljenju zvukom. Zapravo, to nije bila odluka. To se dogodilo. Prve zvučne snimke činim iz praktičnih razloga, a nešto kasnije počinjem se “igrati” s njima. Vodim radio-emisiju na lokalnoj postaji i upoznajem se sa Sound Forge-om. Odmah sam želio svladati taj softwer te sam počeo samostalno raditi. Ali u tome uspijevam tek nakon nekoliko godina. Otada se bavim snimanjem i obradom zvuka i kroz ruke mi prolaze razni uređaji, koji su iz godine u godinu sve bolji i praktičniji. Posljednje radio- emisije radim samostalno – od snimanja i obrade do finalizacije za emitiranje.”
