Local Noise: hip hop meets academia

Local Noise is a project based at UTS (University of Technology, Sydney), funded by the Australian Research Council. Its focus is on Australian hip-hop, and the localisation of hip-hop in different cultural, societal and educational contexts.The website is intended as an archive, accessible to anyone, of the research work that has been produced by the Local Noise project. We want to ensure that these documents, which chronicle important parts of the development of Australian hip-hop, are available, and to assist those who are researching Australian and global hip-hop.

The website contains transcripts of interviews, academic papers, press and media, audio and video, as well as lists of publications by the project leaders Tony Mitchell and Alastair Pennycook.
