MAPS was a major collaboration between Aphids in Melbourne and Kokon in Copenhagen, involving contemporary music, visual design, film projection and text, with artists and musicians from Denmark, Australia and Japan.
MAPS was also an auditory journey through a musical and poetical landscape. Or rather, a journey through the landscapes of the collaborative project MAPS, as presented in Melbourne at the North Melbourne Town Hall (2000), and later in Copenhagen at the Musikvidenskabeligt Institut (2002).
The ideas for which Maps is the forum have their realisation in various forms: in performative site-specific applications to certain buildings and in sound documentation including a number of publications, including MAPS PART 1 MELBOURNE, the Book.
