Ruthless Jabiru to join Bimblebox Art Project

Ruthless Jabiru has been invited to be part of a project in aid of the Bimblebox Nature Refuge in central-west Queensland, where 153 bird species are under threat by a long-wall and open-cut coal mining proposal. The installation has been devised by visual artist Alison Clouston and sound artist Boyd in conjunction with the Bimblebox Art Project. Alison and Boyd have compiled mnemonics and onomatopoeias for the 153 birds under threat, to be interpreted as text compositions by 153 musicians and combined to form the installation soundtrack. The goal of the project is to highlight the threat to the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, to document Bimblebox creatively, and to show Australians and the world what we are at risk of losing. The installation will tour at least eight venues across four Australian states. We will be sharing audio from Ruthless Jabiru’s contribution to the project in the weeks ahead.
