Meridians: sonic manifestations of the in-between

SoundsAbout

From January 21 to March 14, 2022, SoundsAbout offers a full program of changing installations, exhibitions, performances, workshops and talks, as we consider the act of liminal listening and manifestations of the in-between. We hear conversations between worlds, geographies and communities and nest in the fissures between places and spaces. The zones of translation and contact between forms, languages and media are charted. Tensions between the self and others as well as those that open within the act of self-reflection are explored and unraveled. We question the power relations and choices that exist in these liminalities, allowing epiphanies and imaginaries to grow there.
