Grab a pair of headphones and get moving as an unearthly blend of overtones, field recordings, and original music composition pushes the boundaries of your listening. For this sound walk, Rachel Meyers has taken inspiration from the ocean and its surrounds while deep on the remote North West Tasmanian coast.
Southern Ecophony: Wind and Water is a self-led audio tour. Read the listening notes, and plan a solitary walking track, preferably starting somewhere you can see or experience a body of water. The walk will take 25 minutes.
Rachel Meyers is a composer and performer living and working in lutruwita/Tasmania. Rachel holds degrees from the University of Melbourne (BMus) and University of Tasmania (MMus) in both composition and musicology and is a current PhD candidate interested in the listening practices of contemporary music composers and sound artists.
Southern Ecophony: Wind and Water performed by Emily Sheppard and Rachel Meyers; audio recording and mixing by Rachel Meyers with contributions from Luke Plumb.
