The Sweet Sounds of a Sugar Town (2005) CD/DVD is an example of different varieties and uses of soundscapes, how they can be performed and the challenges of their performance. Sweet Sounds of a Sugar Town, which combines natural, industrial, socio-cultural and musical soundscapes, has been performed in various local, national and international contexts. This paper focuses on one space where these soundscapes were performed: the 2006 Australian National Folk Festival in Canberra.
