I am honored to be part of the e-flux project You Can’t Trust Musiccurated by Xenia Benivolski with a presentation of the Soundscape Røst birthed work “Vedøya-Lament to the bird-mountain who lost its voice (“. The artists who contributed to the 4th and final chapter of YCTM “examine the sonic response-ability of the world that struggles to free itself of humanity. Starting with memories and dreams intercepted by sound in film and moving towards the felt effects of climate change and extinction, the chapter holds space for an empathic future where human-centered civilities become holistic code. This chapter is co-presented with Infrasonica and with Kunsthall Trondheim.”
