Saltwater /Freshwater. New collaborative work Ros Bandt and Vicki Hallett.
Live streamed performance interpreting two regions of the Barwon River, a post industrial Freshwater site at Fyansford 3227 and a remnant river estuary at Barwon heads, 3218. Both sites have been degraded by human activity and worse is at hand with tourism and housing developments between these two places. Both are affecting the future of Barwon River health.
This new premiere was sounded via zoom from two different locations during lockdown, Waurn Ponds and North Fitzroy on land, through the ether of a national conference Field Trip, so we can hear the creatures that are still there during Covid up until August 2020.
What underwater dialogues can you hear? Keep listening to this site closely, for presence and absence of aquatic marine life above, below and in the mud through our hydrophone recordings. More artworks soon collaborating online across 4 postcodes. The river is missing us too. Come with us on these listening adventures.
Take care Gobarta (wadawurrung)
