Tura and the City Of Perth are pleased to announce sound artist Daniel Spriggs as the TRANSMISSION site-specific sound art commission recipient for 2017. This is a new initiative between Tura and the City of Perth as part of the Winter Arts Festival. The commission is for a new site-specific sound-based artwork which will be delivered via a sensor-activated speaker system at four locations around the city.
The work aims to explore the modulating hum of the sheoak ghost song, caused by wind passing through the leaves resurrecting a reverberation that was once commonly heard in the pre-colonial Perth and its surrounds.
The work will run from late June for the duration of the City of Perth Winter Arts Festival.
More information and locations to come soon.
