Liquid Architecture Present Caitlin Franzmann: Tree-telling in Melbourne


Good news! There’s another peculiar sonic experience from the folks at Liquid Architecture. And it’s free:

“In Tree-telling, artist Caitlin Franzmann expands her ‘Magical Thinking’ project – an ongoing series of works that use hand-crafted divination cards as the trigger for experimental one-on-one encounters between the artist and individual participants. In this work Franzmann has created six new cards and six new sonic compositions, each corresponding to a tree in the Queen Victoria Gardens surrounding the MPavilion: Canary Island Palm, River Red Gum, London Plane, Algerian Oak, Jacaranda and Atlas Cedar. Chancing a card from the deck, visitors will join Caitlin on a shared walk from MPavilion to their chosen tree and back again, listening, talking and reflecting as they go.”

Caitlin will be at Mpavilion awaiting visitors at the following times:

Mon 18 Jan, Tue 19 Jan, Wed 20 Jan – 12-3pm
Thu 21 Jan, Fri 22 Jan, Sat 23 Jan – 10am-1pm
Sun 24 Jan – 12-3pm

Additional music in Tree-telling composed by David M Thomas
This project is part of the Liquid Architecture investigation Eco-sonics: auditory cultures approached in ecological terms.
