Abstract

This article, commissioned by the Australian Music Centre to mark the announcement, in August 2020, of Ros Bandt's Art Music Award for Distinguished Services to Australian Music, is a brief romp through the sound art works over the last 40 years of Ros Bandt, High Priest/Godparent/Early Innovator of Australian Sound Art – a journey spanning the dawning of late-1970s postmodern experimentalism into the post-millennium. Bandt’s work takes us from a place of attending to listening to what spaces tell us; how they are charged through their audible tracts.
