Is a short film about the making of The Hidden a multi channel film and sound environment installation.
The Hidden is a new Bundanon commission by celebrated Australian filmmaker and artist Tim Georgeson and leading composer, performer and proud Kalkadunga man, William Barton. It offers a personal account of the Bundanon land and waterscapes through film and sound.
Working together for the first time, Barton and Georgeson undertook an artistic residency together at Bundanon in 2021, composing, recording and experimenting in response to Wodi Wodi Country. They continued this close collaboration offsite, weaving together their responses through an ongoing exchange of material.
Anchored by Barton’s compositions, Georgeson’s films are edited in distinct acts revealing unseen interactions between sunlight, moonlight, fog and wind. Together, sound and image form a meditation on the ancient knowledge and histories held within the earth, water and skies of this place.
The edit was by celebrated Swedish musician and artist Erika Angell.
