I’ve finally finished filing and labeling the hundred odd recordings that I made on my HD recorder throughout the South Island of New Zealand – roaring trains, trilling birds, forest disquiet, mountain silence, gurgling glaciers, soundchecks, windy huts, tramping boots, falling ice and idle conversation. I’m looking forward to sorting through these recordings over the next few weeks. Some of the recordings will form an edition of New Zealand-centric field recordings whilst others may be included on a new album that I’ve started work on since arriving back home.

Tristan Louth-Robins (*1981, Adelaide, South Australia) is an Australian artist working principally in the medium of sound art. Ideas of sound and its signification are key elements in Louth-Robins' work, traversing the space between the visual and aural his sound art is realised through the mediums of recordings, installation and performance. He is interested in sound and its associative implications - including its relationship to objects, technology, urban space and the natural world. Since 2005 Louth-Robins has performed and exhibited work in Australia and internationally as a solo artist, whilst occasionally collaborating with visual artists, musicians and performers.
