Anthony Magen presents
Evening Soundwalks for the Melbourne Jazz Festival , June 2012Evening Soundwalks return after their hugely popular debut at the 2011 Festival. This year, join celebrated landscape architect and acoustic ecologist Anthony Magen and The Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology to search for Melbourne’s hidden voice amongst its streets, laneways and secret spaces, tracing a different path through the CBD each time.
With the simple rule of ‘no communication’, just listening and walking, you’ll soon become attuned to the subtle soundscape of the city and gain a new perspective on the acoustic environment that surrounds us.

West Head Project | Now Now
Out HearThe musicians of West Head Project, the Now now and Out Hear have been building culture around music outdoors in special and resonant spaces for over a decade. Locations of previous performances have included national parks, urban spaces, mountain tops, caves and islands around Australia. This 10 day musical pilgrimage down the South East Coast features Jim Denley (wind instruments), Monika Brooks (accordion), Dale Gorfinkel (modified trumpet), Sam Pettigrew (double bass), Laura Altman (clarinet) and Rishin Singh (trombone). They will play each day – finding music in unique outdoor spaces. “We hear the alien quality of the non-human in our music and the humanity of music in nature.” David Dunn, Nature Sound and the Sacred. Bring walking shoes, warm clothes, water & picnic snacks.
