RE:Sound Conference, Aug 19-24, 2019

 

Screen Shot 2019-09-19 at 20.10.03.pngIt was a very nourishing experience for me, being part of the Track 3 session: “Sound and Voice: Art, Practices and Politics” at the RE:Sound conference, Sound, Media and Art,  which took place in Aalborg, Denmark, from August 19th to August 24th,  In the panel shared with Luz Maria Sánchez – Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana Lerma (Chair of the Track), and Luis Carlos Sotelo – Concordia University, we shared different approaches to listen in contexts of violence and migration, and with a common ground on listening to women’s accounts and bringing these voices in art and performative forms. In our overlapping research-practices we explore contexts of Colombia and Mexico, and look paths for different traumatic stories to be heard by others, within the axis of political voice and reaching resonances in the broader population, using the voice as a “trigger” of specific healing processes as individuals and as a society.

My presentation, “Ellos no están entendiendo nada” [“They are not understanding anything”]: Listening to Embodied Memories of Colombian Migrant Women, reflecting on conflict and migrationfocused on complex embodied narratives that emerge in the INTIMAL Long Distance Improvisation (Telematic Sonic Performance), and was co-authored with Alexander Refsum Jensenius.

The panel was moderated by Iris Garrelfs, Goldsmiths University of London.

Thanks to our co-panelists!!!
