Idea of South south installation

Reflecting Glenn Gould’s Idea of North radio performance, here’s a project that attempts a scan of the auditory world across the southern latitude – contributions welcome!

Idea of South – Web Map Installation (work in progress)
Roger Mills & Neil Jenkins.
21st February – 21st March 2009
Loop Space Gallery, Newcastle.
109 Hunter St, Newcastle, NSW.

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 psychogeography, Idea of South maps an evolving collage of sound events through a web map interface supplied by 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.
