S3 E21 Hear Here

Hear, Here is a sound art project that featured in the recent Castlemaine State Festival. In this episode we speak with the two artists who created Hear Here – Dan Koop and Daniele Constance.

We conducted this interview on a boat in the local swimming hole ‘The Res’ (Expedition Pass Reservoir). As we paddled, drifted and glided across the water we discussed how a sound art project like this one can shed light on the nuances of people’s connection to place and how each person relates to a commonly loved location in very different ways.

If you happen to live in Central Victoria, Dan and Daniele highly recommend that you head over to The Res and have a wander around there as you listen to this episode.

Hear, Here was created in association with Punctum.

This episode included some small samples of the interviews used by Daniele and Dan for Hear, Here. They are with Uncle Rick Nelson, Marie Jones, Damian Kelly & The Swimmer.

This episode was created in 2021 as part of a series called Saltgrass: Turning the Goldfields Green, which was created with support from MAINfm and the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
