Katoomba Laneways Acoustic Artwork Commission

I have been commissioned to create a large acoustic artwork in Davies Lane Katoomba. The work titled Echo Lane aims to create an intimate amphitheatre in this busy laneway which opens onto Katoomba’s main shopping street.

Echo Lane is an experimental site activation across Davies Lane based upon the Indian Trumpet Horn, a ubiquitous feature of my homeland, designed to project sound across long distances with minimal effort. The concept behind the work builds upon ancient ideas of deep listening. This new work will animate the relationship between sound, place, time, and history, by amplifying sounds from within and without the site, bringing them into the laneway acoustically.

The work is scheduled for installation by the first week of September 2021.
