Instruction Songs continue in Maddern Square, Footscray.


West Projections maybe finished but not the sound piece Instruction Songs by Faux and Co. 
Instruction Songs is a series of public announcements installed at Madden Square. Playing over an 8 hour cycle, a Footscray Market spruiker will call-out instructions to the public on the hour from 2pm to 9pm each day. From how to flee an oppressive regime, to how to communicate in sign language, each broadcast presents a different set of instructions.
