West Kiewa Power Station

Site-specific sound installation, 4 channels, 18 minutes, 2013


West Kiewa Power Station is a soundscape composition focusing on one part of the extensive Kiewa Hydroelectric Power Scheme in the Victorian Alps of Australia. Composed of field recordings, the piece draw on the sonic activity of power station and its relationship to the surrounding range, in the mist of construction works and upgrades the site was undergoing during time spent there. 

The work draws on field recordings collected during a residency at the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture in 2013 and was presented as a site-specific sound installation in Bogong Village during the 2013 Bogong ELECTRIC festival. 

I acknowledge the Kaurna People as the traditional owners of the unceded land on which I live and work. I pay my respect to their elders past, present and emerging.
