Interviewing & Recording Workshop in Marfa, TX
This three-hour session is designed for those who want to acquire and hone their skills for an array of audio projects — radio, podcasts, online stories, storytelling, oral histories, audio slideshows, family histories, news, documentaries, and other multimedia platforms.
In the workshop, The Kitchen Sisters will cover interviewing and miking techniques, sound gathering, storytelling, use of archival audio, field recording techniques, recording equipment, how to make interviewees comfortable, how to frame evocative questions that make for compelling storytelling, how to build a story, and how to listen (which is harder than it looks).
The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva) are Peabody Award winning independent producers and the creators of hundreds of stories for public broadcast about the lives, histories, art and rituals of people who have shaped our diverse cultural heritage. Their NPR Morning Edition series, Hidden Kitchens, just received a James Beard Award, and their podcast, The Kitchen Sisters Present…, was just awarded a Webby for best documentary podcast.
