In her role as an affiliate, Meredith is leading a multidisciplinary project to translate Murray River data on water quality and quantity into sound. This technique will be used to create a sonic fingerprint for this iconic river system. The research will combine the data soundscape, plus actual sounds and images from the river to create an interactive science communication piece on the health of this system. The project is a collaboration between Fenner and the School of Music and is currently listed as an International Year of Sound project.
