My blog is all about the famous outback Australian National Heritage Listed City named Broken Hill, located in the state of New South Wales. I first visited #BrokenHill in 2002 and have returned many times since then. ilovebrokenhill.com will help you discover what's great about this historic mining city, where in the mid 1880's the line of lode, a rich ore body of silver, lead and zinc was found. You will find stories about anything related to Broken Hill.

Sound Circus page
Where:     404-408 Argent Street, Broken Hill.

When:      Tuesday 11 September 2012, 6.30pm.

Entry is free but donations will be passed on to the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).
The “Sound Circus” band is currently touring outback ‘Corner Country’ New South Wales.  This band is comprised of a rather unusual combination of instruments including traditional ones such as the clarinet, violin, double bass, trumpet and trombone, as well as some quirky instruments such as the fence wire, gum leaf and amplified glass.

Violin from
Sound Circus is modelled on the traditional idea of a travelling circus.  In this case, there is a team of sound artists, performing or installing new and experimental music.

The sonic odyssey will feature new and old technologies such as auto-drumming, a huge ball and sonic sculpture projects intermingled with the traditional instruments in environmental contexts.

The emphasis will be on live music that uses interactive technology, engages with the environment, and connects to the people who live in the Corner Country.
