Cobar Sound Chapel


The Cobar Sound Chapel is a permanent sound installation artwork set in an old disused water tank and inspired by the vast landscape of the Australian outback. It was completed in early 2022 and is a creation by renowned composer and sound artist Georges Lentz, in collaboration with Pritzker-Prize-winning architect Glenn Murcutt, the musicians of The Noise String Quartet, as well as Cobar Indigenous visual artist Sharron Ohlsen.

The Cobar Sound Chapel is an intimate sound space, a marriage of music, architecture, art, poetry and nature. In 2023, it won the Adaptive reuse award in the 2023 NSW National Trust Awards.
