Sounding the Future is the primary project undertaken as part of Gail Priest's Australia Council Emerging and Experimental Arts Fellowship.

The first installation iteration of the work was realised within the framework of EMARE Move On at Bandits-Mages in association with La Box, L'École nationale supérieure d'art de Bourges (ENSA), with support of the Culture 2013 Programme of the European Commission, the Goethe Institut and Bandits-Mages, France.

2015 European travel has been assisted by NSW Government through the Arts NSW.
