Wakulda: Weaving stories as one.     2021.  In the lands of the Birpai people.

10 minute digital Projection public artwork commissioned by Port Macquarie and Hastings Council and created by Esem Projects.
Tactile Music - Sound recording, Field Recording, Sound Design, Music Composition, Music Supervision
.

Commissioned to mark 200 years since the founding of Port Macquarie as a penal colony,
Wakulda shares stories of nature and landscape through voices and perspectives of the local Birpai people.
For the Birpai people the Bicentenery is time of grieving not celebration. 

Field recordings are taken throughout the landscape and used to create the music and the atmosphere of the soundtrack .

Water, wind, leaves, plants, rocks, insects, birds all work to support the spoken words and songs of the Birpai.

Humble thanks and reverence to the amazing community involved.  Much respect and admiration to the amazing Esem projects.

Thanks and recognition to the Port Macquarie and Hastings Council.
A truly special project we are honoured to be part of.

Tactile Music created an original 45 minute soundscape for this exhibition at The Australian National Museum, Sydney, Australia.

Broadcast on a loop throughout the gallery it features audio quotes from ocean advocates, experts and people negatively effected by climate change.

Ambient music underpins the soundscape. The data generated music is composed from ocean temperature data. Recorded at NULL Island (1880 -2017). 

Each Chord = 1 year.  Pitch = Temperature.

Field recordings, sound design and specifically recorded ocean sounds combine to give us a sense of location.

One Ocean, Our Future is part of the UN Decade of Ocean science for sustainable development.

OceanTempData: Choir Version

Listen below to the data being sung by a choir.  *This version is not featured in the exhibition.
