a field recording project

SONIC.LAND shares new artwork by Rachel Shearer, Clinton Watkins, Edwina Stevens and Reuben Derrick, four artists from Aotearoa – New Zealand who work with environmental sound.

Through a presentation of sonic artworks and a series of long-from interviews between the artists and curator, explores the individual strategies and thought processes of leading NZ sound artists as they relate to environmental recording and associated practices in Aotearoa – New Zealand.  

This project was conceived in 2019 and was intended to feature as part of the 2020 exhibition programme at BLINDSIDE Gallery, Naarm – Melbourne. It was been developed as an online project with support from the Audio Foundation, Tāmaki Makaurau – Auckland, whose International Presentations programme is generously supported by Creative New Zealand.
