Central Coast Council - James Hazel: Underscoring the Commons

James Hazel: Underscoring the Commons

Presented by Central Coast Council

Underscoring the Commons is a project by James Hazel, who uses sound to explore the idea of the shared ‘commons' - the relationship between communities and the social/physical environments that are integral for sustaining lives and livelihoods.

Through each iteration of Underscoring the Commons, Hazel works with communities to construct a musical-score of the geographic and social ecologies of sites with complex working-class histories.
In the creation of UTC: 33.4267° S, 151.3417° E (the coordinates of Gosford), Hazel will conduct recordings of soundscapes, community music ensembles, and interviews with residents.
This ever-expanding, living, and breathing archive will form a listening experience available on looped broadcast in Gosford Regional Gallery, where Hazel will invite community input through QR codes, to be woven into the tapestry of the score.
James Hazel is an artist, writer, and researcher who works across video, text and extended score practices.
Hazel uses sound, and (re)performance to prompt us to explore what it means to live, love, and listen through socio-economic precarity.
