RealTime Arts: Adhocracy 2013

Ben Brooker has written a piece on Adhocracy 2013.  My project, Reclamation gets a mention.

In Reclamation, Adelaide-based sound artist Tristan Louth-Robins presents an enigmatic soundscape crafted from site-specific field recordings taken in Port Adelaide during the course of Adhocracy. What emerges is a sort of living record of the region’s historical and continuing conflict between the natural and industrial worlds, Louth-Robins’ hydrophones collating a complex and contradictory array of sounds: circular saws, jet-skis, the trilling of dolphins and the clattering bows of harboured boats. Or maybe—and Louth Robins embraces this possibility—it is none of these things and, like so much else we have seen and heard over the course of the weekend, imagination, prejudice and deceit fill the spaces a reality denied to us creates.

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. In 2010 he completed his MA at the Elder Conservatorium of Music, University of Adelaide, South Australia.
