Historian Bill Gammage describes Hulong as the site of a conflict during the Frontier Wars, which arose as Europeans settled along the Murrumbidgee River in the mid 19th Century.

After being inspired by Garlo Jo's project to record at Poison Waterholes Creek in 2017, I've returned to the idea of using a guitar played by the wind at sites of conflict between black and white Australia.

Australia's First Nations are the oldest living culture, so it seems appropriate to show the scars of what might have become a shield remain on a living tree.
