Join ASO artist-in-residence muthi reed Hollerin Space and House of Lux for LUX radio (HOLD ON) krewe coumbite : whatwebeenandwhywecare
For our 3-week workshop we will cultivate individual walking practices, enhancing body awareness, of flesh, environment, atmosphere, weather, noise,
perception, listening quality and place. We will record ambient sound material in our walks using the audio recording devices provided by the workshop. Then
we will come together and share + swap + record + archive our sound and conversations of beauty, curiosity and tension reflecting the practices of walking
We will edit our material with Audacity and Ableton softwares to co create sonic scapes with moods articulating our growing awareness and presence for walking. Our aim is to be translating feeling through sound. Sonic scapes will be programmatic material for sound walks for future walkers.
House of Lux (2023) is the myth and provocation for a QTBIPOC accessible Pangea culture of ME WE US OURS care values and practice for a world with love and accountability, without police and prisons, with neighbors and cousins trading maps, stories, recipes, remedies, libations and provisions. Our sound is a migrating noise legend reminiscent of the Black folk who raised us while living through the violent spatial conditions of U.S. imperialism and globalization in 1970s - 2000s North Philadelphia. Between us, our aim is for what Toni Morrison named the source of self regard. What James Brown called attitude. And what Andaiye called neighborliness.
