Wellington Calling

I have been working on Portal in various forms over the last year and have now stripped the idea down to a participatory sound work. Now the work will involve collecting sounds from Wellington and Alaejos, which is the antipodean point to Wellington, and forming these into a soundscape.
I have identified a sight for the work at Queens Wharf, which is situated close to the waterfront and has a series of ventilation outlets running along it. These are perfect to use the sounds to be played from as they look the part and you can imagine the sounds coming from deep in the earth. 
The next stage will be finding potential collaborators to help develop the work and collecting sounds from across the region.
