Blue Streak is a new hybrid work that interweaves several threads of inquiry into an audio performative map that examines the ways place, and relationships to place, can be metaphors for memory.

Contemporary travelogue? Arctic frontier story? Scientific examination of how the brain hears? Blue Streak is a poetic and performative investigation into memory and the ways perspective colours our personal histories over time.
Seed funding has been made available for this project through the City of Maribyrnong Community Grants program, and will commence creative development in February 2015. Further work will be undertaken through the Supported Residency Program at Bogong Centre for Sound Culture in summer, 2015.
Blue Streak consists of a suite of projects which map resonant locations for me in time and place: Bogong (1944), Manitoba (Fort Churchill, Canada,1948), Norfolk Mews (London,1950) Elizabeth (Adelaide, 1960), Carrickalinga (South Australia, 1965), Campbell Street (Glen Waverley, 1970), and West (West Footscray, 2014).
