Soundcraft (Development)

During the month of October, composer and sound artist, Elizabeth Jigalin, will lead the development of Soundcraft, creating a bespoke Campbelltown Arts Centre Minecraft world, replicating the IRL landscape in and around the Arts Centre within the Minecraft world.

Soundcraft transforms C-A-C into a sonic playground – inviting audiences to imagine, play, craft and listen to the world around them via sound.

Soundcraft will culminate in ‘real world’ activations on 1 November 2020, part of Fisher’s Kids Festival at C-A-C, as hungry listeners and noisy makers are invited on an interactive sound hunt where they will encounter a multitude of curious red sound blocks, dispersed throughout the environment.
