Sounds of Weather is part of an intercultural collaborative project curated by Philip Samartzis (RMIT University, Melbourne) and Christophe Charles (Musashino Art University, Tokyo) titled Borrowed Landscapes. The project explores the effects of weather on the built and natural environment through sound and video recordings and performances. Sounds of Weather investigates the specific weather conditions of each site through fieldwork conducted on the Sumida River, Tokyo; the Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel, Saitama; and, Bogong High Plains in the Australian Alps. Using sound and video to record these spaces, the project creates an open framework for a range of artists to respond to the weather and infrastructure of environments in Japan and Australia.
