Art Talking Melbourne - New Geographies

The Bogong Centre for Sound Culture warmly invites you to the launch of our latest output - a new publication (New Geographies), cd series (Topologies 1) and new website.
New Geographies explores new ways of representing material, spatial and environmental conditions shaping remote regions and communities.  It is part of a series of projects facilitated by the BCSC focusing on the processes and impacts of sustainable energy production; effects of climate change in wilderness areas; ethnographic studies of remote communities; the chronicling of vanishing industrial procedures; and systems of representation used to render natural and built environments.
Topologies 1 presents an overview of commissioned sound works produced for the BCSC since its inception in 2010. Included are compositions by Christophe Charles, Byron Huang-Dean, Rosalind Hall, Geoff Robinson and Michael Vorfeld. This CD is the first of a series that will be regularly produced to highlight the creative research occurring at the BCSC concentrating on the history and ecology of the Australian Alps, and attendant social and environmental issues.

An introduction of the work undertaken by the BCSC will precede a concert by Philip Samartzis drawing on recordings made in the Australian Alps, The Kimberley and Eastern Antarctica measuring the effects of wind on remote settlements.
