On Noise and Sound to Portray and Control Chaos
English | Free entrance, registration required | talks & encounters
This listening session invites the audience to tune in, engage with and share questions on the politics of sound and listening and the generative potential of it in the levant area. Sound has a history in being used to mark territories and movements by governments and hegemonic powers for violence and torture among other purposes, as well as in social and liberatory projects. In the region the soundscape of cities like Beirut, Jerusalem or Cairo are a manifestation of the contextual political infrastructures that dictate daily lives. Over the last two years with the tumultuous political, economic, and sanitary conditions, the soundscapes have never been this chaotic and unharmonious. This begs the question of how sound can be deployed to negotiate with / overcome / control chaos. The listening session focuses on sound and voice, and questions around how we listen to processes and reactions within ourselves and our environment, what grows out of it, and what tools can these productions give us to reappropriate that which sonically and sensorially we deem essential but has been silenced or swallowed as a consequence of this chaos and conditions.
