Spatial Sound & Subhistories

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If sound is an invisible architect defining psychic and physical territory, then these three speakers spend their lives stalking the most unsound histories imaginable, writing them alive to give them presence again. In a series of short presentations followed by a panel discussion, Dave Tompkins talks about the deep sea boom of the Miami Basin, AUDINT speaks on unsound and undead frequencies, and Kristen Gallerneaux discusses the slap-back echo of the “sonic spectre.”
Each of these speakers have gone underground in one way or another, recording the sub-histories that evolve out of the subterranean spaces they’ve infiltrated. The deep time plural modes of memory and truth collide with lived mythology: things that shouldn’t be true, objects that shouldn’t exist, places they shouldn’t have gone. This is a different kind of sonic record.
