Inspired by Carme Pinós’s MPavilion design and philosophy, ||Reflections|| is a spatial sound experience that responds to and echoes its location. Sound artist Lisa Greenaway draws on recordings of the natural and urban rhythms and music of the Queen Victoria Gardens, composing in collaboration with the environment to create a synergistic, hyper-real experience of place and space.

Each morning and evening of the season as MPavilion opens and closes (times will change depending on programming), you can listen as ||Reflections|| discovers, highlights and enhances the rhythm and melody in everyday sounds, using the pavilion’s structure to reflect and focus these sounds, and weaving them into a musical chorus. ||Reflections|| is an invitation to engage in deeper listening, to waken our ears to the beauty, rhythm and melody in the sounds that surround us.

In Collaboration With

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
