Are you listening?


Found Sound Gippsland by Paddock Digital is a project that encompasses the collecting of unique field recordings from the Gippsland area, in order to capture the sonic ecology of time and place. From this, an online sound database will be created that can be used and accessed by the public for usage of sounds in digital media works, music compositions and for educational purposes.

As part of the project at least four performance workshops will teach digital media skills in regional areas, particularly focused on sound recording and how to use the database.

The project is led by Mark Hooper with assistance from Steve Schulz.

Found Sounds Gippsland is made possible via a Toe In the water grant from Regional Arts Victoria and in kind support from the VRI Hall, TopShelf Gippsland, RMIT University, ABC Gippsland, Latrobe City Council, Latrobe Valley Drumming Community PTY LTD and Gippslandia Magazine.

To stay up to date with the project you can follow Found Sounds Gippsland on Facebook or Instagram.
