A follow-up to Waterfront Utopia (2010) in which a newly edited selection of stories is presented on headphones, and contextualised in an immersive sonic environment. Part of an ongoing series of artworks exploring site, memory and relationships.
Waterfront Utopia II presents an immersive and ever-changing sonic environment of electronic and electroacoustic elements, while headphones contain a family’s stories of growing up and of their ongoing relationship to their environment.

Dedicated to Peter Christensen (1951-2011) and in loving memory of Chester Teo (1939-2012).
