The performance audio was curated into Biopresence: Bioacoustic Urbanscapes by Doo Sung Yoo at
Ohio State University, US, 2016, and Talk Talk by Maddy Rosenberg at Central Booking, New York, 2016.
It was also included in the Incinerator Art Award: Art for Social Change, Melbourne, 2016

    Through a textual realisation of the sonic the installation proposes a vocal relationality between people and common noisy wild city birds triggered by lives lived in proximity to the Nicholas Building in central Melbourne, where the gallery is situated, but also more generally within all urban environments.
Using the installation as an experimental text score five performers will be voicing the work at 6.30pm on the opening night – Jenny Barnes, Vanessa Chapple, Martina Copley, Viv Corringham and Sue Pyke.
