The seagull: a sound vessel
Sound artists Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey have been in residence in Bermagui for over a year. Their gentle, thoughtful listening and questioning has inspired a series of conversations and a band of ardent local sound collectors, capturing stories and sounds of our environment.
the seagull is Madeleine and Tim’s creation. It’s a story-boat that you can climb aboard to hear evocations of a landscape and a community. They’ve remade a putt-putt boat into a place of listening, a place to hear the collected secrets and confessions from a year of bermi talks.
During the Festival, you can find the seagull at the point beside the Surf Lifesaving Club on Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, you can voyage with skipper Jamie Watts from this point or visit it on land at the Barragga Bay site during festival hours. Watch our website for more details of travels with the seagull.
2012 is the 21st year of the Four Winds Festival. For the very first time the festival has a brand new permanent Sound Shell, being the first stage of developing their beautiful site as nature's concert hall.
Genevieve Lacey is the artistic director of Four Winds Festival.
