IDEA OF SOUTH - Sound Map Installation (work in progress)
Roger Mills & Neil Jenkins.
21st February - 15th March 2009
Loop Space Gallery, Newcastle.
109 Hunter St, Newcastle, N.S.W.
Inspired by our relocation from the United Kingdom to Australia twelve
months ago, Idea of South explores the quintessence of southern
sentience through sound. Part phonography and part psycogeography,
Idea of South maps an evolving collage of sound events through a web
map interface supplied by artists and sound recordists contributions
of recordings from locations throughout the southern hemisphere. As a
work in progress, this impressionist soundscape will evolve as more
sounds are added and there is an ongoing call for submissions. The
coordinates from each location will also plot an indeterminate tonal
composition for a radiophonic work to be performed in the Autumn.
