Shock Of The New – 12 Oct

on

I presented a piece at Shock Of The New @ Spectrum Project Space called ‘Corridor’, which I originally had done as part of a Disquiet Junto project.

Here’s my little blurb for it:

Something I like to explore is using the same field recording to construct a soundscape – as though the sound is mediating on itself. With this piece. I went under an underpass in Neerabup National Park, which backs onto near where I live. Neerabup is an important stretch of bush for two main reasons – firstly, it acts as a wildlife corridor for native wildlife [particularly the many native birds], and secondly it protects part of an ancient Aboriginal migration route [which is now a walking trail called the Yaberoo Budjara Heritage Trail].

When I was arranging this soundscape, I thought about movement, loss and attempting to preserve what was left.
