Event Description
Bruce Watson's multimedia presentation tells the story behind the 1903 wax cylinder recordings of Tasmanian Fanny Cochrane Smith. These are among the earliest Australian sound recordings, the only recordings of the Tasmanian Language. Encapsulating significant themes in Australia's history, with surprising twists and turns, it is a story of genocide, reconciliation, technology, and the power of song. Bruce Watson is an award-winning songwriter, performer, and researcher.
