The Sound, Art & the Environment masterclass is a four-day all-inclusive learning experience, in the unique location of Bogong Alpine Village. Led by Dr Philip Samartzis this masterclass introduces students, artists, industry professionals and those interested in phonography to concepts and practices informing site-specific sound art.

The masterclass provides participants with in-depth workshops in sound recording, critical listening, compositional methodologies and sound spatialisation. Workshops are supplemented by technical demonstrations and fieldwork drawing on sound art, soundscape and contemporary music to help facilitate dynamic responses to site. Additionally the masterclass provides time for participants to play and discuss their project for analysis and feedback.
Dr Philip Samartzis, the current Australian Antarctic Division Arts Fellow, has a significant history of practice within remote and endangered wilderness areas. He is the Artistic Director of The Bogong Centre for Sound Culture and Coordinator of Sound within the School of Art at RMIT University.
The Sound, Art and the Environment masterclass is limited to only 12 participants and will book out early.
