Jaara Jaara Seasons (2013) Ros Bandt
Lunched in November 2013, Hearing Jaara Jaara is a digital acoustic sanctuary of Jaara Jaara box ironbark woodlands, North Central Victoria, Australia. Created by Sound Artist Ros Bandt with the kind permission of Uncle Brien Nelson, Jaara Jaara elder. Visit the official Hearing Jaara Jaara 2013 website here. This website is a digital sanctuary for listening to country in a box ironbark forest in Central Victoria Australia over the course of a year, 2013. Listening observations are recorded and shared globally here. This habitat is at once a sound lab and poetic inspiration for soundscape composition and public performance. This Jaara Jaara place is 55 acres of land for wildlife country with a checkered history of pastoralism, gold, hobby farm and native bush. Over the past 20 years it has been land for wildlife and left to regenerate free of intrusion with the result of regeneration of the box ironbark habitat. It is a natural sound sanctuary.
