VVFA x CSM MAID presents: Sound Systems — A Lunar FolkloreIKLECTIC, SE1 7LG, [Venue Details]
An evening of sonic speculations and audible narratives told through the design and performance of otherworldly rituals and instruments.
Sound Systems is an attempt at flattening the relationship between sonic experiences, and music as a source of intellectual exploration.
“[Designing] at the intersection of speculative fiction and anthropology, we find a sense of epistemological humility about the kind of worlds we could or should inhabit. Yet epistemological humility should not be confused with futility: possibilities and potentialities still matter.
We do not know what we are capable of, and yet that need not keep us from the pursuit of what ifs. Through the imaginative interpellations of speculative fiction, [we] gravitate toward new localities and means of presence: ecological, technological, Afro-futuristic [etc].
Facing the imminent prospect of both disaster and discovery, they call us to resist despair and to craft tangible ways of shaping and repairing the worlds we still hope for.” — Anderson Ryan, Emma Louise Backe, Taylor Nelms, Elizabeth Reddy, and Jeremy Trombley (Dec 2018). Speculative Anthropologies, Theorizing the Contemporary, Fieldsights
We travelled to far away lands and spaces, like explorers of new landscapes, to report back our findings in the form of sonic experiences — their performances, hopefully, informing new meanings, shining new lights on our relation to the world.
