Since I began the sound map back in 2012, I’ve wanted to do something like this, but other things took precendence, such as the actual recording of things to put on the sound map or not really having anything to say at a given time. Well, it’s five years later and I (think I) can articulate myself a bit better on camera and combined with higher resolution technology, this will hopefully make for interesting and nice looking outcomes.
In this first instalment I visit the beautiful Ingalalla Waterfall and adjoining creek (almost entirely absent of visitors for the hour I was there) and the far more desolate and slightly creepy area of Second Valley Forest near Gate MH2.
The audio recordings made on these visits will be posted to the sound map soon.
Enjoy, fellow Earthlings!
Vitastatistix’s annual national artist hothouse, Adhocracy is back for 2014 and it is certainly worth checking out over the Queen’s Birthday weekend (7-9 June, 2014) if you’re Adelaide-centric. You can find more information on the event via this link: http://vitalstatistixtheatrecompany.blogspot.com.au/2014/05/adhocracy-2014-national-artist-hothouse.html
I participated in last year’s event and produced the sound ecology work, Reclamation. At some point I’d like to go back a remix/remaster the work and release it as part of my Installation/Archive series on my Bandcamp page.
