tRAKa-tRAKn takes as it’s starting point a traditional Gamilaraay survival story – Burra Bee Dee (flying mice): this cultural story teaches Gamilaraay youth about the importance of healing on country.
This was our second research trip to the Pilliga Forrest, Central NSW with r e a and Gail Kelly to plan tRAKa-tRAKn, a new work being developed by r e a. We tested equipment and collected audio, video and still images to support the development of the project which r e a plans to make in September 2020. The Pilliga is a wonderful natural environment to work within, with an abundance of birdlife, diverse vegetation, and lots of silence! So far we have collected a range of audio data from the site with stunning Ambisonics recordings which we will later convert into multichannel ambience tracks for the work.
