We unexpectedly came across a map of pre-sand Egypt, a pre-historic time when Egypt was green. This had to be about 7,500 B.C. or earlier. Where the desert meets the sea, the sea loses some of its distinctiveness: a beautiful green lake, a sky blue [bleu célèste]. We enter into it all together, together for the first time in the history of humanity. After the storm is over we will tell you the whole story. What we can tell you is that in _____ there’s a dimensional jump hole. Ever noticed the green parakeets flying around Rome?

What you are hearing right now, if you’re at 1:48 of my recording, which I did via my iPhone’s “Voice Memos” function, is me typing the words you’re currently reading. I’m in Bobst Library, which is New York University’s library. I’m in a computer lab with 24 Apple computers. I’ve probably been in this computer lab 2000+ times. Besides me, there are 6 people in here. I haven’t counted the number of computers or estimated the amount of days I’ve beeninhere—that I can remember at the moment—until today, and I’ve been using this computer lab for something like the past ...

Northampton, MA One afternoon in May 2021, amidst rising temperatures and vaccination rates, I went to Child’s Park with my wav recorder. That week, I was feeling stuck and unsure of what to do with my free time and creative projects. I chose the park because it was a place where activity concentrated, which I had noticed during my frequent visits there that spring. Individual people and groups posted up on the grass at sufficient distances from each other to afford some sense of safety, comfort, and privacy, values which everyone’s body language and choice of grassy spot seemed to assert. ...

The Chill of Lonesome is the title of a bluegrass album by Ernie Thacker. Ernie, his family and friends are amazing bluegrass musicians. They live in Clinchco, Virginia. Back in 2006, I suggested to Mélanie Scarciglia, my partner, Chris Hoover, our Good Samaritan (and producer) and Garret Linn, movie director (two of my good friends from New York), to go visit Ernie Thacker and his band, Route 23, and make a film about bluegrass music. Our destination was the small town of Clinchco, Virginia. We drove the 14 hours from NYC to Clinchco without knowing what we would find there. I ...

OCTOBER 2018 CHRISTINE SUN KIM Roux 1, July 2018, 2 min. 44 sec. Berlin, Germany This is an unedited recording of my one-year old making drumming sounds as my partner cooks in the background. This file is essentially her first audio recording that I’ve decided to make public, which is akin to putting her first photo online. As a Deaf mother, sharing these sounds is a very personal gesture.

‘Eavesdropping: A Reader’ addresses the capture and control of our sonic world by state and corporate interests, alongside strategies of resistance. For editors James Parker (Melbourne Law School) and Joel Stern (Liquid Architecture), eavesdropping isn’t necessarily malicious. We cannot help but hear too much, more than we mean to. Eavesdropping is a condition of social life. And the question is not whether to eavesdrop, therefore, but how. Published by City Gallery Wellington in association with Liquid Architecture and Melbourne Law School, on the occasion of the exhibition Eavesdropping, curated by James Parker and Joel Stern, at City Gallery Wellington, 17 August–17 ...

MAY 2017 ELLIE GA In September of 2007 Ellie Ga joined the Tara, a research vessel drifting in the upper reaches of the Arctic. The Tara was the second boat in history constructed to purposefully drift indefinitely in the frozen sea. Ellie joined the crew of ten, as the only artist on board, for the last half-year of the expedition. She maintained a close conversation with us, reporting with sounds, images and texts via email and the occasional satellite phone call. These are some excerpts from Ga’s sound dispatches from the Arctic. Last Day of Sun, October 2007 Map Intro, October 2007 Map Part 2, ...

JANUARY 2019 EMILIE PISCHEDDA Tamales, 2019 20 min. 11 sec. Tamales is a cross between the real and the existing. Recordings from journeys, sound wanderings, like a perpetual road-trip in which sometimes the radio interferes and lets us discover pieces of music. We find ourselves more precisely in Mexico with Tamales, between street vendors, police, weavers and blind singing between nod to jazz, techno and interlope genres. A trip in a car with open windows rolling towards nowhere in particular, just moving. Tracklist Mr Tc – Soundtrack for Strangers Plankton Wat – Song of Winter Death Rabih Abou-Khalil – The Sphinx And I SOAP KILLS – Galbi All other sounds are ...

Contemporary urban discourse relies overwhelmingly on visual representation. While it may be more effective both in conveying the actual appearance of a particular urban space and in communicating the intentions of the architect and the planner, this kind of representation leaves little room for individual interpretation and cannot possibly capture the full range of feelings and emotions that people attach to particular places. For this, we must also turn to the more immediate sensations of touch, smell, taste and sound. This episode explores the last of these sensations, considering what it means to represent cities and architecture through sound. Unlike the ...
