Immerse yourself in Channelling Dulcie’s Piano, a large-scale audio-visual work at the confluence of experimental sound art, acoustic ecology, climate concern and piano practice. Down a narrow laneway flanked by the cityscape, contemporary classical music swims around you. A translation of post-flood river systems is projected onto an ageing pianola, which is in turn projected onto a multistorey building above – a vast video journey along the largest river system in Australia, following the Murray River from its mouth in South Australia, along its tributaries to the Great Dividing Range in northern New South Wales. The piano – the central object of this work – belonged to a family member, and was towed 3000kms over ten days and eight performance locations. Percussion, brass and strings interpret the waterways, floating through the air, marking passage, marking time.
