Abstract

As an artist and musician, ‘place’ has always been entwined in my creative work and thinking. This arts-based autoethnography (Manovski, 2014), and music-based research (Leavy, 2015) draws deep connections between being an artist, researcher and educator in relation to the conceptual and physical local landscapes I move through. Situated in local places this research explores the dynamic overlaps (Yunkaporta, 2009) found across cultures, places, time and space. In response to this sense of place this thesis presents an intertextual artistic and scholarly celebration of this Wurundjeri landscape—this southern place—while critically gazing at myself in relation to land, people, climates, skies, waterways, and animals as I co-create with, and in ‘the south’ (Connell, 2007b). A complex polyphonic layering and re-presentation is thus expressed through the arts-based knowledge and narratives created as part of this artful inquiry. In this way a multimodal engagement with place, autoethnography and arts-based narratives is established.
