Event Details

This exclusive live performance features compositions and improvisations based on hydrophone recordings from four Queensland river systems: the Brisbane River, the Mary River, the Noosa River and the Logan River. The performance explores the value of listening to rivers in our current state of ecological crisis. Performed live by Queensland Conservatorium’s Toby Gifford in Brisbane and Leah Barclay in the USA.

River Listening is a research collaboration between Leah Barclay and the Australian Rivers Institute to explore the creative possibilities of aquatic bioacoustics and the potential for new approaches in the management and conservation of global river systems. The project involves listening labs, field recording, sound maps, performances and installations to experiment with virtual technologies and community engagement in understanding river health and aquatic biodiversity.
