Event description
Sonic Interdependence: working materially with sound as a social and spatial strategy

About this Event

Join Julian Day in a workshop that will explore the sonic potentials of public spaces around the University of Melbourne Parkville campus, inside and out.

Using game-like strategies to ‘sound out’ the built environment, the workshop will encourage reflection on the acoustic properties and social implications of public spaces throughout the University of Melbourne Parkville campus – including outdoor areas, public zones inside campus buildings, and acoustically rich spaces like the underground carpark, bicycle hub, stairwells, gridded pavement areas, etc. The artist will introduce participants to different ways of listening along with some simple structures by which social bonds can be generated and maintained through performance.

These workshops are for University of Melbourne students from all faculties. No musical experience is required.

Julian’s project is part of the Ian Potter Museum of Art’s 2019 Inside Out program, generously supported by Peter Jopling AM QC, Andy Zhang and Calvin Huang.

Workshop Information

Workshops will run from 1 – 2 hours and involve group activities and reflections.

The specific meeting place at the University of Melbourne, Parkville campus will be forwarded to participants on the week of the workshop.

The sessions will lead towards a new site-responsive commission with the Ian Potter Museum of Art in 2020, which students are encouraged to participate in.
