But might there be other ways in which we could consider the political dimensions of noise, and if so, how might issues of materiality and agency within play though an alternative approach to the politics of noise?In addressing these questions, my article examines the historical and temporal dynamics at work in the sound of technology. Here I argue that the temporal displacement we witness in the contemporary use of past technologies results in an intensification and re energisation of the various forms of noise.

“It is important for their voice to be heard amongst others in the community and it is important that central cultural meeting places like BMEC are meeting places for the Aboriginal community.” Stephen Champion hopes that through this exhibition, and BMEC’s ongoing program, people get a sense of the awakening of the cultural voice of the local Aboriginal community. “For the local aboriginal community we hope it will enhance a sense that BMEC is a place for them to express themselves and feel comfortable being in, and we hope young Aboriginal people will be inspired to find avenues to express themselves and discover their culture.” For the exhibition is a chance for the Aboriginal artists to share and tell their stories.
