Sound Series: Perch will investigate the connection between site-specific sound, installation and collaborative performance.

Artist Catherine Clover creates an immersive sound environment inspired by Blindside's view overlooking Federation Square. Her installation sonically reconsiders the gallery space from an avian perspective - a hidden architectural perch from which to survey the city centre. Informed by her ongoing research into bird calls, Clover uses ornithological sound as her own kind of squawked and chirped language through which to engage in collaboration.

Like a sound art nature documentary, other experimental musicians, and performance and sound artists are invited into Clover's roost to respond to her looped installation with performances of their own. The exhibition is as much about the sonic experience as it is about site itself and the building of social and artistic relationships through sound. Collaborators include percussionist Vanessa Tomlinson and expanded vocal artist Alice Hui-Sheng Chang.
