What do you hear?
"Soundings: Protest|Politics|Dissent" explores how artists navigate the depths of sound experience.
Here, protest, politics, and dissent are embodied in digital sound files. Broadcasted, they defy the transient nature of sound - only inasmuch as a single file can be replayed. Through repetition something happens.
Does one really hear the same thing twice?
From podcast to experimental audio, each artist captured, molded, manipulated, mediated, or composed sound into a document. The works embrace environment|climate change, diaspora|e/im/migration, incarceration|torture, and memory|trauma, deepening auditory perceptions.
Artists include: James Andean, Meira Asher, John Bechtold, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Valerie George, Christopher DeLaurenti, Ursula Handleigh, Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyê¿n, Michelle Jaffé, Kapwani Kiwanga, Lal, Jack Loeffler, Jonna McKone, Murr, Mendal Polish, Post Commodity, Tullis Rennie, Simone and Max, Brian Spies, Kirsten Stolle, Hong-An Truong, Karen Werner, and Gregory Whitehead.
