Jordan Lacey

Dr Jordan Lacey is a transdisciplinary creative practitioner and research fellow in the School of Design at RMIT University. He is author of Sonic Rupture: a practice-led approach to urban soundscape design(Bloomsbury 2016), and various articles, which explore the role of sound installations in transforming urban life. Originally a musician and sound-artist, Jordan has become increasingly focussed on the creation of sites-of-encounter in urban environments that might exceed the typical day-to-day functions of city life, and speculates on the possibilities of posthuman environments and listenings. He has recently been awarded a DECRA fellowship entitled Translating Ambiance: restorative sound design for urban soundscapes.

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.
