This City This Sound is an ongoing composition and installation project. Ania creates work that evokes the sonic character and identity of a city through compositions based around field recordings gathered from the city streets and neighbourhoods.
Audible Lockdown is a new audiovisual work created in collaboration with Carl Polke for the Australian Music Centre's 2020 Peggy Glanville-Hicks Commissions initiative. The work is a sonic portrait of the city of Melbourne during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown, investigating how pandemic lockdown has shifted the underlying sounds and sonic character of the city. A suite of compositions, made up entirely of field recordings taken throughout the Melbourne CBD during lockdown and reimagining different locations within the city, form a rich sonic journey through the city streets, with accompanying visual imagery and video also shot in Melbourne during lockdown. Audible Lockdown will premiere online via YouTube at 7pm AEST on Friday September 4th.

For the first work in her This City This Sound series Ania travelled to Rio de Janeiro as as an artist in residence as part of the Despina Residency Program. Her resulting installation, Música de Coco, was first exhibited at Senado Tomado, Despina's monthly open studio event, in July 2019. Música de Coco was subsequently presented at Desvio, Centro, Rio de Janeiro.
