Pungwe Sound Trails: Performances by Rob Machiri

Tuesday, November 28, 2023

12:00 am - 12:00 am

Pungwe Sound Trails disseminates sound materials through auditory performances with critical consideration of spaces and locations within which they are found. The methodology of this project is built on itinerant aspects of ‘tracking the sonic’, which involve digging archives, listening sessions and location sound walks and recordings. As an interventional project, Pungwe Sound Trails aims to reorientate sonic archival practices. It reconsiders how archival practices in sound studies are co-opted as a political tool, how sound in general assists at producing new memories of geography and belonging.
