A River Flow - Sounds of the Brunswick Heads River
Artist: Conrad Hamill
Title: A River Flow - Sounds of the Brunswick Heads River
Material: sound installation
A River Flow follows a day in the life of the Brunswick Heads River. Throughout the soundscape, the river converses with local wildlife, birds soaring majestically in effortless circles above, the winds, the ocean mouth, and the pulse of the Brunswick Heads village - the life of the river deriving purpose from it's source and the lives it nurtures. A dance between stillness and the movement of an ever-wavering tide, the work aims to connect listeners to the sounds of their natural environment through surfacing harmonies, rhythms and melodies that often go unnoticed.
Over 2020, Conrad took the unexpected clearing of his concert schedule to relocate to the Northern Rivers where he has worked with local artists, yogis and storytellers to explore his own artistic voice. A series of works conceived here in Bundjalung country are set to be released in an album later in the year.
While now calling Melbourne home, as things reopen, Conrad aims to spend plenty more time sharing and creating more music in the Northern Rivers. He is available for solo cello performances, collaborations with artists and storytellers, cello yoga and soundscape commissions and you are able to reach him through email@example.com
