Batemans Bay is Sam Miers. Sam was born in the bay and is devoted to a life caring for it. Over the last twenty years he has curated shows there which have become a core site in the australian music scene for cross-Country, cross-cultural, cross-class, cross-time and cross-species dialogue. Since the undoing of the 19/20 bushfires, Sam has become a lyrebird, building a six hour compilation of indigenous and newcomer sounds from Yuin Country (which holds the bay) on an array of subjects through time. With this project and his various collaborations with Yuin Elders, E Fishpool, Kalyani, Laura Miers, Club Sync and Daniel Oakman, he is constantly at work for the dialogic health of his community.
