We’re living in exciting/fearful times. Times to question ways of doing and being.

Times to find different possibilities, to try things out. Discover What Happens If. But

explore at random without bothering too much about order. Do it through Rhizomes

– find a NEW form… a differently…

Language/music/sound/noise overlap definitions support and counteract each other, all changing depending on context and physical space. Play with ideas of location of meaning. Should meaning even be expected or found? Rather what does music DO?  What does music allow people to do? How to Listen in ways that make us receptive to one another? Ensure a plurality of voices can be heard? What are the settings in which speech and sound can be heard and have a meaningful effect?

                                                             

Recording is set and fixed but its situation isn’t

Language – intertwined with my double helix

slippery something continually out of grasp

 

▶ …what else to say…

Sound too.  Performative.  Bodiless.  Elusive.  Can’t be grasped.  Brings back memories.  Provokes effects on bodies.  Raises emotions.  And can completely alter how we perceive spaces.  The theatrical quality of sound.

LISTENING –

it’s influenced by cultural training, a political act. John Cage understands Listening
as autonomous. To Pauline Oliveros Listening Deep is activism, counteracting Distracted Viewing, relational and always collective. When Listening is vertical
spatial considerations come to the fore, attention is paid from development into sounds themselves. Sounds interreact with surroundings.

COLLABORATION -

Nothing exists in isolation

Devising/collaborating – how to invite others in..?

How to hold tight to conversations..?

UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights – another piece of collaboration
