In composing this soundscape, Aiv has observed the practice of night-sky-gazing as a connection of the everyday with the exalted. Recording repeated, short passages of double bassist Monty Shnier alongside his own voice and piano denatured sonically by sound artist Germaine Png, Aiv frames this perception as a long-form piece of ambient music.

This work was created on the lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung, who are its continuing custodians. We acknowledge their Elders past and present as well as the future leaders of these lands and on this continent.
Aiv Puglielli works across disciplines in an independent and collaborative cultural practice, as a storyteller, composer and sound designer.
He navigates forms including static installations, film and theatre, using the conduit of sound to straddle common themes including human interaction and our connection with technology, gravitating between spaces of contemporary art music, experimental sound art and improvising ensembles.He seeks to connect arts practice with its historic role of galvanising community to shared values and driving change in rigid societal systems.
Aiv holds a Diploma from the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and a Bachelor degree from the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), in addition to completing intensive-based training with the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (Rome) and mentorship with the Australian Art Orchestra (AAO).
