Who Has A Voice: Radical Listening an Extended Vocality
The voice has personal, political, and planetary dimensions. Who has a voice? Do squealing glaciers have voices? What can sound tell us about the health of rivers? How have cities transformed birdsong?
In this project, I created a soundscape focused on the effects' of noise pollution to humans and animals within my community. The soundscape includes sounds commonly found in my community, such as: airplanes, car alarms, construction, loud music, buses, and more. I also paired the sound pollution with a sound bath of healing frequencies to release stress and to calm down the body and mind.
And, how ought we listen?
