'Farina' responds to the evolution of the town’s soundscape (collection of environmental sounds) from European settlement in 1876 to abandonment in the 1970s, and then to the present day restorations in 2018. In particular, it pays attention to changes in sound relating to the fauna(native animals and introduced species), weather patterns (drought and flood) and human technology (trains, cars, planes, etc.) over the past 140 years.

Performed by volunteers of the Farina Restoration Group, percussionists Vanessa Tomlinson and Joshua Baldwin, and Jesse Budel at Farina on June 22 2018.
