Our Ausmusic T-Shirt Day echidna friend

The Ausmusic T-Shirt Day logo

This year's campaign has a brand new logo, designed by First Nations artist, Bree “Little Butten” Buttenshaw.

She describes her inspiration as follows:

“Echidnas are very mysterious and clever, which helps our friend as they are very shy. However, a fun fact about Echidnas is that they have an extra sense 'electroreception', this means that they can detect weak electrostatic fields in the environment. It has been said that Echidnas can vibrate enough energy to cause water to ripple at a frequency that we as humans, cannot hear. This is particularly useful for our little friend who has a passion for the drums and can really delve into that special sense to find the right groove.
