The radio project is part of Dr Tebbutt’s contribution to The Listening Project — a program of research collaboration that has brought together Australian cultural and media scholars, practitioners and activists.
Initially, it had a life on Pool, the ABC social networking website, but this week it takes off as a fully-fledged broadcast.
The research conducted for the project includes work done for a creative thesis from Media Honours graduate Marian Blythe, and her audio production thesis will take up the first half-hour of the time slot (8.30-9pm). After 9 o’clock, Dr Tebbutt’s contribution continues the broadcast, which also includes radio student Olivia Kaleta with a piece on the hearing disorder tinnitus that she completed for her final year radio subject.
‘The Listening Lab’ will air on Sunday 17 April, 8.30-10pm. To find Radio National‘s frequency in your area, click here.
