“Avalon / C” was a special commission for Sydney Radio Station FBI’s “Ears Have Ears” Program hosted by Brooke Olsen & Scarlett Di Maio. It was originally broadcast on the 12th of March 2015.
In 2004 i relocated to Brisbane and took up residence in a small corner-set block of Apartments called “Belvedere” in the Fortitude Valley District. Just over 10 years later i moved back to the same area and into “Avalon”, a building with an incredibly rich history, situated directly across the road.
A sequel of sorts to the “Sun Tribes” record, “Avalon / C” is not only an exploration of one of Brisbane’s most historic apartment buildings but also a self reflective look across the road, back at myself 10 years ago along with all the hopes and dreams i had bought with me to this city.
