Kimberley Skies -Audio video Installation by Kim Little & Simona Castricum.
In an area that is known for its harsh, dry, desert-like climate, a particularly impressive lightning storm came to visit. Welcome to the Kimberley, an alien-like beautiful landscape in Western Australia. As climate change affects our mother planet, we see more and more unusual weather patterns growing in momentum. While lightning storm are not uncommon in this part of the world, the people of this region had never encountered this much rainfall for over a century. The nearby township of Broome faced floods and a massive cleanup, recording 564 millimeters in 48 hours onto dry cracked earth. There was a staggering 80,000 lightning strikes in a 24-hour period. About 30,000 of those were cloud to ground lightning strikes.
Audio-visual artist Kim Little wants to transport you to the other side of the globe with 'Kimberley Skies', the first installment of a series of songs and moving images that translate landscape into soundscape.
By stacking looped vocal harmonies while interpreting the images of a wild and rare electrical storm over the desert, in collaboration with Simona Castricum, this piece has traveled across the world to light up your eyes & drench your ears. Put on a headset, get comfy and experience the wildest lightning storm of the century with music from the woman named after the land.
