Back of the Day 

Multi-channel and singular sound installation

Collaboration between Murray Collier (UK) and Hannan Jones (AUS) 

Sound Thought 2017, Centre for Contemporary Arts 

The Back of the Day is a diptych video and sound installation, a new work by multidisciplinary artist Hannan Jones and sound based pracitioner Murray Collier. Blending themes of communication, distance and collaboration through sound, video and space.

Formed simultaneously between two locations; Mandjoogoordap/Mandurah and the South West of Australia and Scotland, the films produced represent two sides of a conversation. These visual elements are tied together by one common soundtrack, which acts as a communication tool between two visual elements.

Translating current reflections on experiences of place, transit and time, while seeking to aesthetically challenge and experiment with sonic and visual structures; each film explores the artists maintaining common points of reference in different environments and across times zones.

We acknoweldge that this film was made and took place on the land of the Bindjareb Noongar people, who are the traditional custodians of the land in and around Mandurah. 

Presented as part of Sound Thought 2017 in the Club Room of the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow
