Sound Mapping Workshop with Geoff Robinson
Explore Sound Ecology and Mapping in this free workshop.
Saturday 16 September, 2.30 – 4 pm
In conjunction with the Current exhibition, the Counihan Gallery In Brunswick is pleased to present a Sound Mapping Workshop with artist Geoff Robinson.
Taking place within and around the perimeters of the Brunswick Town Hall the workshop will focus on listening and mapping as a way to examine the relationship between sound and our surrounding environment.
The workshop will involve charting the site by walking through a variety of spaces inside and outside the Town Hall building, listening and noting the quality and location of sounds observed.
These individual observations will then be captured on a map which the group will work on together to inform a spatial diagram transposed onto the Courtyard space in the Town Hall building.
Geoff Robinson is a Melbourne based artist who creates process-determined, site based artworks that engage with sound mapping and spatial diagrams.
Geoff has exhibited at Latrobe Regional Gallery Morwell (2015), Centre for Contemporary Photography Melbourne (2012), Sound Effects: Sound Specific Seoul South Korea (2010), Gertrude Contemporary Melbourne (2009) and Heide Museum of Modern Art (with Jennie Lang) Melbourne (2007).
He received a City of Melbourne Laneway Commission (2009), a Gertrude Contemporary studio residency (2004-06) and was awarded the Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture (2014) for the project 15 locations/15 minutes/15 days. Geoff is currently undertaking a PhD in Fine Art at Monash University, Melbourne.
