Sounding the Condmine

Sounding the Condamine was an outdoor installation and performance work celebrating the sound of the historic Condamine Bell. On the banks of Dogwood Creek at Gil Weir - 20 artists, dancers and musicians animated the landscape in a tribute to the iconic bell that gave drovers safety, comfort and an incredibly refined musical ear!

The event included a musical treasure map to guide guests through the installation, a mass bell-ringing, and a concert featuring new work by six Queensland composers, all featuring the bell. Many guests brought their own Condamine bells, which became a magical part of the event.

The development and presentation of Sounding the Condamine was generously funded by Q150 and the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University.
