Introduction

The Map

The Bogong High Plains Sound Map comprises field recordings documenting the eco-acoustic characteristics of the Bogong High Plains and Kiewa Valley to register the effects of climate change, industrialisation, environmental dissonance, and recreational tourism upon this rarefied cold climate ecology. The website uses real time meteorological data to activate sound recordings that reflect prevailing atmospheric conditions. It also offers a variety of navigational pathways to encourage new and dynamic encounters with the archive.

Sound maps provide a way of expressing the acoustic markers of place distinct from the textual and visual methods used in traditional cartography. For this project sound recordings are used to expand the way the region is represented by incorporating seasonal characteristics, and material and social encounters to enhance user experience and interaction. The website features recordings produced over two years to demonstrate ways in which the alpine environment is transformed by climate and weather, and activities such as power generation, land management, tourism, and sport. It also uses field documentation and commissioned photography to identify spatial, environmental, and topographic features within the landscape. Through the convergence of natural, anthropogenic, and atmospheric events the sound map articulates the operations and tensions underpinning this uniquely Australian cold climate ecology.

The recent wildfires in Victoria and New South Wales, and prolonged closure of the Bogong High Plains Road due to an unprecedented landslip, provide powerful evidence of the vulnerability of alpine habitats. This project is responsive to the volatility generated by global warming by preserving and advocating for a place central to the health and wellbeing of all Australians.

The Bogong High Plains Sound Map is supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, Regional Arts Victoria, and the Cold Climate Research Lab at the School of Art - RMIT University.

The Place

Located 350 kilometres north-east of Melbourne are the Bogong High Plains which form a part of the Great Dividing Range, a cordillera system consisting of an expansive collection of mountain ranges, plateaus and rolling hills, that runs parallel to the east coast of Australia. In winter it is one of the largest snow-covered areas in the country. The traditional custodians of the land surrounding the Bogong High Plains are the indigenous Bidawal, Dhudhuroa, Gunai–Kurnai and Nindi–Ngudjam Ngarigu Monero peoples. Before the arrival of settler colonialists, these groups would travel to the high plains during summer to feast on the Bogong moth – an important seasonal food source and to participate in intertribal gatherings.

The Bogong High Plains comprise heathlands, which cover some of the steeper and more wind protected areas, and grasslands, which grow in exposed areas, and are typically more resistant to wind and frost. Some of the richest soils are found in wetlands, defined as places where water is stationary for at least one month per year. The abundance of water typically leads to highly organic soils from the decay of vegetable matter. Snow patch herb fields occur in places where snow remains for a large portion of the summer but are very rare. Clustered across the plains are snow gums which are the hardiest and most cold-tolerant species of eucalyptus.

Aside from the introduction of agriculture and pastoralism, the biggest change to the landscape is due to the development of the Kiewa Hydroelectric Scheme, which commenced construction in the 1930s. It is the first scheme of its kind, and the second largest overall in mainland Australia. A series of aqueducts are used to capture mountain streams, which channel their flows into catchments including Pretty Valley Pondage and Rocky Valley Dam. Since its inception the scheme has evolved into four interconnected hydropower stations serviced by substations, transmission towers, rail sidings, dams, pipes, and networks of roads and tunnels.

Contained within the hydro scheme is Falls Creek Alpine Resort which serves as a gateway to the Bogong High Plains. The resort comprises chalets, lodges, and apartment complexes most of which were built from the 1980s onwards from corrugated iron, profiled metal, timber cladding, stone, plastered masonry and painted concrete block. Falls Creek is situated within sub-alpine woodland, dominated by snow gums and a dense shrubby understorey. A notable feature is the number of mountain ash tree trunks still standing after the 2003 fires that devastated the region. Their grey, sepulchral forms dominate the sub alpine woodland, and provide stark monuments to the ferocity of the fires. Commonly seen and heard around the resort is the Crimson Rosella, Flame Robin, Australian Magpie, Pied Currawong, and Australian Raven.

The sound of water is ever present in the landscape - flowing, melting, dripping, splashing. The Bogong High Plains, which mostly appears natural have been shaped by major earthworks to enable different structures and technologies to harness the collected water. The combination of exposed and concealed infrastructure adds to the complexity of the alpine soundscape through the activation of introduced materials. Water sounds across concrete aqueducts and retaining walls, and within underground pipes and drainage systems before being channelled into power generating turbines drawing on a process of gravitational force. Wind plays restlessly through infrastructure including communication towers, gates and safety barriers, and various types of signage, causing them to groan, shudder and bang depending on wind velocity and direction. The harshness produced by altitude and climate culminates in a highly agitated soundscape in which the material sound of anthropogenic manipulation and environmental degradation is palpable.

Sound is omnipresent through the materials and spaces that make up this fragile place in which climate and weather, wildlife, industrialisation, and tourism converge into a complex chorus of human and non-human exchanges. Tracing the many sounds that comprise the Bogong High Plains provides a way to consider these complex histories and interactions to construct new narratives and access points.

Artists

Jacob Agius

is a multi-disciplinary artist, film composer and sound designer. Their work utilises field recordings, electronic sound production and audio processing techniques, focusing on deep listening, sonic textures, films and the intersections between the self and the unknown.

Aaron Claringbold

is an artist based between the south east and south west of the Australian continent. His art is an attempt at thinking and feeling a place in the world. It is driven by the desire for understanding and by navigating the contemporary conditions of distraction and techno-social tangential thinking. From his positionality as inheritor and beneficiary, he is invested in a critical cultural engagement with the realities of settler-colonial modernity in so-called Australia; and with its various global catchments and outlets. He is interested in entanglements of the now, in cycles and feedback loops, in mythologies of separation, in infrastructure as monument, in photography as show-and-tell, and in art as a tomb or altar.

Madelynne Cornish

is an audio-visual artist and curator based in Bogong Village. Her works explore the effects of climate on natural and built environments, and the social dynamics informing remote communities. Madelynne employs duration, landscape and stillness as a means of responding to the temporal and spatial morphology of place. Her multi-layered and affective artworks are reflections of how humans engage with and define their environments. In addition to her art practice, Madelynne is the co-­founder and director of the Bogong Centre for Sound Culture.

Amias Hanley

is an artist currently living on Wurundjeri Country in Melbourne, Australia. Their practice uses sound and media to explore relations among queer ecologies, attunement, situatedness and speculative practices. Engaging forms of performance, installation and collaboration, Amias’ work is interested in audition as an affective practice and the possibilities of sound and technology to support and alter the sonic expressions of humans and more-than-humans.

Rohan Hutchinson

is a photographic artist and designer whose work researches the transformation of space and our relationship with the environment, both built and the natural. Hutchinson’s work is an expanded practice, exploring the photographic image within gallery and publication settings, with the inclusion of event design. In 2020 Hutchinson founded acb press, an independent publishing platform set up to educate and create conversations around photo book publishing and design.

Paul Mylecharane

is a graphic designer and web developer whose practice focuses mainly on the intersection of physical and digital publishing and its relationship to the archive. He works collaboratively under the name Public Office with people and organisations doing for and not-for-profit work in the arts, culture and education.

Philip Samartzis

is a researcher who focuses on the social and environmental conditions informing remote wilderness regions and their communities. His practice is based on deep fieldwork where he deploys complex sound recording technology to capture natural, anthropogenic and geophysical forces. The recordings are used within various exhibition, broadcast and publication outcomes to demonstrate the transformative effects of sound within an ecological context.
