Rudi Louis Taylor-Bragge and the layers of Country
Series Producer Clare Pickering has a yarn with Rudi Louis Taylor-Bragge about the soundtrack he created for the series and the added layer of Country that can be heard when listening to the track.
A bit about Rudi
I am Iowendjeri Boonwurrung Kulin, born and raised on Boonwurrung country in my hometown of Euro Yuroke (St Kilda). I am passionate about music, have a multi-instrumental background and completed my studies in music production at Swinburne University. I am equally passionate about Indigenous health and wellbeing, and currently am a PhD candidate in psychology at Monash University. In addition to running several small businesses, I am developing an Indigenous cultural centre for my local area that will feature a small cafe, arts, and creative space to promote cultural empowerment for the Aboriginal communities of Birraranga (Melbourne). My connection to Country and people fuels my commitment to narrowing the equitable gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
