pure and adulterated aural landscapes
evading literal interpretation
Michele is a Melbourne-based sound artist and designer, working with sound and noise by exploring their concept of deconstruction in the context of creating works that are informed by spatial and auditory restrictions and boundaries, as it galvanises a direct relationship to context and site. They investigate environments to gather sound ‘reproductions’ to deconstruct and manipulate, and through the vehicle of abstraction, the invitation is there to experience them in an intensely personal way.
Michele’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally working as a sound designer, sound consultant, and sound technician in galleries and non-traditional public spaces including Dark Mofo (Tasmania, 2018), Melbourne Fashion Week (Melbourne, 2017), Dutch Design Week (Netherlands, 2017), EUNIC Kulturhuset (Stockholm, 2017), QueerTech.io (Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, 2017), Little Woods Gallery (Melbourne, 2016), MAMA (Albury, 2016), Ironside Studios (2015), 24 Hour Experience/FOLA (Melbourne, 2014), Tempting Failure (Bristol, 2014), MCA Art Bar (Sydney, 2014). Michele works solo and in collaboration with artists in sound installation, audio-visual performance, mixed-media, and durational performance. In 2019, their latest project, MxMV, will be their new exploration of live solo performance.
Alongside their creative practice, Michele works at 3CR Community Radio as a content producer, programmer, mentor, and sound technician for current affairs, queer, and feminist programs to present content that is inclusive and provides diversity, with a foundation on strong narratives and factual commentary. They specialise in facilitating creative expression and working collaboratively with individuals and teams to produce radio features. Michele is a current 3CR board member, Community Radio Federation member, and a Full Writer member with APRA/AMCOS.
Michele acknowledges the Wurundjeri and the Boonwurroung people of the Kulin Nation as the
traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which their music is primarily created and produced.
