These are a few pics from Listening Art. The instagram captions don’t seem to want to embed, so in order they are:

  1. My comically sound-centric audiovisual documentation rig
  2. I’m here to listen
  3. Sound, proof
  4. Over hear
  5. Memory walk

Documentation rig. More mic, less camera.

upcoming show – Listening Art


Coming up, from Tuesday the 3rd to Saturday the 7th February, 10am – 5pm every day, is my PhD show Listening Art.

Sonic artists and listeners to sonic artworks tend to take for granted that how a listener listens to a sonic artwork affects what that listener perceives that sonic artwork to be, through the listener’s inclusion, exclusion, and interpretation of the sonic events that constitute a given artwork. This tendency leaves the act of perception un-theorised in the production of sonic artworks, and unquestioned in their reception by listeners.

In Listening Art, composer and sonic artist Camille Robinson investigates making sonic artworks that take as their primary concern criticality of listening on the part of artists and listeners. Through works that present juxtapositions of forms of listening-to sound, Camille presents a vision of sonic art that actively engages in the theorisation of listening in the production of art, and invites listeners to critically reflect on listening in the act of doing it.

Admission is free and all are welcome, tell your friends. For directions on how to get there see the map below.

Recording of Red Tree . Red Earth . Red Water

Audio, Events

Recording of the premiere of Red Tree . Red Earth . Red Water by the Yarra Trio at Melba Hall in 2008.

Program note:

Red Tree . Red Earth . Red Water is one of a group of compositions concerned with the idea of stillness and the attempt to arrest time in what is essentially a temporal medium. This is my first foray into the piano trio genre and also serves as a preliminary exploration of the timbral palette which can be drawn from this particular group of instruments. The title of this piece is not intended to communicate a specific narrative or image, but rather exists as a point of reference from which the listener may experience the music.
