    'Since childhood, Robert Adamson has had a strong connection with the Hawkesbury River, north of Sydney. Producer Libby Douglas and sound engineer Phillip Ulman travelled to the Hawkesbury and spent two days with Robert and his wife, the photographer Juno Gemes.

    'They recorded Robert in his home and on his boat reading his poetry and talking about his life. This feature mixes soundscapes of the Hawkesbury River, oyster farming and fishing, with Robert talking about the influences on his work, his family, his desire to become an ornithologist and the first time he heard Bob Dylan.'
