The circle of strife: GPS tracking of garbage – where it came from and where it went!

Litter Trackers is a collaborative project between RMIT and Melbourne Water, supported by the Victorian Government.  The project is the first of its kind for Victoria, and only the second time that litter has been GPS-tracked in Australian waterways.

In a Victorian-first citizen science project, GPS-tracked bottles will be released in suburban waterways around Melbourne to reveal precisely how litter makes its way from our streets to our beaches.  The Litter Trackers project will see RMIT University scientists working with schools and community groups to deploy 100 GPS-tracked bottles in 20 locations across Melbourne’s catchments and you’ll be able to see it LIVE and watch the interactive map that follows the journey of litter in our waterways!

Rhys Tolhurst: Traitor – a set of emotions that is “unique yet relatable”

Hailing from Cairns in far North Queensland, Rhys is an up and coming Singer/Songwriter who has come a long way from his jazz inspired covers he brought to us early on when he first came to the nation’s attention.   Relocating to Melbourne where he has been based for the last three years, the importance of family and friends keeps his vists back home regular.   He’s been using that time to craft his songwriting and production skills, Rhys has a rather eclectic range of influences such as Matt Corby, Bon Iver, Angus & Julia Stone & John Mayer that shape his unique Indie sound style.

So what has changed since his last single ‘Being Together’?

“When I wrote Being Together, I was very young.  I think I was 17 or 18.  It didn’t get produced until I was 21 and even then I felt my direction had changed but I still wanted to get it out.  I like to think that whatever I sing over time will still sound like me, but my sound has massively changed direction and I’ve got many more songs and stories to share over the next couple of months.”
