Set-up during Lockdown attempt to creatively and politically respond to the Corona Crisis.
I also collaboratively produced a radio show called 'Sonic Collage'. Sonic Collage is a show that plays readings, sounds, music, poems homemade and sent to us from different artists each week, curated to a different theme. In particular this episode explores forms of repetition and the importance of repetition, of chorus, ritual, missing the hole. This idea of doing the same thing but different, doing the same thing but different, doing the same thing but different - which in terms starts to speak about nonlinear approaches to places/time/feeling and not seeking a ‘whole’ but instead recognising and moving within darkness, or uncertainty and embracing what lies in those depths.
‘Sonic College’ explores how the role of the voice has changed now, maybe there has been a shift in the way we think about voices now we can’t see each other, hearing voices now feels more intimate. this show is not just about voices though, it is also about music - we think instruments can be a way of talking about things to articulate when words feel clumsy or inadequate. how voices and mouths become instruments, and what can be found and exists within the ‘chorus’, when words and silence turns into noise. how voices and mouths become instruments, and what can be found and exists within the ‘chorus’, when words and silence turns into noise.
