James Webb at Signal Sound System

James Webb will create a new public intervention as part of the 2009 Melbourne International Arts Festival. Utilising the City of Melbourne's SIGNAL speaker system on the Northbank of the Yarra
River, Webb will produce a series of short public service announcements with local voice artists. Appearing authoritative and authentic, these text-based sound works will be fictional and oblique information-style messages; benign but allowing for a certain degree of curiosity and mistrust.

Other artists appearing on the Melbourne International Arts Festival include Peter Greenaway, Janet Cardiff & Georges Bures Miller, Fabien Giraud and Raphaël Siboni, Philip Brophy, Ray Lee and Callum Morton.

Webb's work was curated by Jared Davis, and produced for the Melbourne International Arts Festival with The City Of Melbourne, Signal and RMIT.
