Event Details

GhosTrain is a site-specific, sonic-sculpture that engages with the disappearing memory of Sydney’s recent industrial past. Each day, at 1pm, a siren will herald the haunting approach of a steam locomotive, whose acoustic trace will pass along the axis of the CarriageWorks foyer space. Sound artist and sculptor Nigel Helyer explores the architectural heritage and social history of CarriageWorks – recognising the importance of the soundscape that once characterised the site, endeavouring to re-instate specific elements of its acoustic ecology and oral history
