Hydrodome Sound Project

Celebrating Mandurah and Peel’s experience on the water

The HydroDome focuses on our community’s connection to our waterways from Mandurah’s ancient Bindjareb heritage to 21st century recreation.

Internationally recognised digital artist, Dave Carson, UK based sound artist, Justin Wiggan, and award- winning choreographer, Bernadette Lewis, are capturing the sights, sounds and movements of our community’s interaction with our precious waterways.

This multi-sensory artwork was launched at Kaya – Party in the Square in October of 2017, providing a taste of the immersive 360 degree Hydrodome experience that will be a focal point at the Stretch Arts Festival 2018.

Sound collections will be made of our community’s experience on the water and narratives will be recorded about their stories and experiences as well. These will be used in the composition of the soundscape by Justin Wiggan.

Sound snippets and footage from your phone, GoPro or other device can be sent to stretch@mandurah.wa.gov.au with your name, the activity you were taking part in, who with and where. For help with recording, sending or more information call Heloise Lorimer on 9550 3279.

Movement will be choreographed with both professional dancers and non-dancers, facilitated by Bernadette Lewis.  Members of our elderly, special needs and Noongar communities, as well as children, dance schools and swim schools will be approached to take part and get involved.

The filming of some of these dances will be recorded amongst other places, in the Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation centre, in the swimming pool with 360 degree cameras.

These films along with the soundscapes will be shown at the Stretch Festival 2018 in a projection dome which the public will be able to enter and be immersed in the artwork.
