    Soundscape Mixtape Workshop with Colette Aliman - Work from home for the post-club generation

    ‘If I can’t dance, I do not want to be a part of your revolution’ research bureau: Soundscape Mixtape Workshop by Colette Aliman

    As sound blurs the boundaries and is able to mediate the relationship between resistance and power, in the time of COVID-19, we will aspire to speculate and compose mixtapes about how we would sonically
    engineer our future cities.

    Participants: Gaspar Cohen, Anjali Prashar-Savoie, Micaela Terk, Tuva Bjӧrk
    Mixtape Title: Work from home for the post-club generation
    Concept description: What sounds delineate the current moment, as the world outside our walls continues only for essential work? Radio listenership is spiking. Instead of in the club, we sit at home with the cat. What will we take along with us to the nightlife of the post-pandemic era? This piece is a speculation on the aural experiences of futuristic clubbing, and a soundtrack of dancing alone.

    Mixtape Title: Shut the F*ck Up Project
    Concept description:
    Starting with the idea of the sounds before the pandemic and after the pandemic.
    By muting sounds one by one finding the transition from the cities to the body. And discovering unique sounds belongs to the neighborhoods and our own unique bodies.
    Muting loud noises that come from unequal power relations allows those who were silenced to start being recognized.

    ‘If I can’t dance, I do not want to be a part of your revolution’ research bureau: Soundscape Mixtape Workshop by Colette Aliman

    As sound blurs the boundaries and is able to mediate the relationship between resistance and power, in the time of COVID-19, we will aspire to speculate about and compose mixtapes about how we would sonically
    engineer our future cities.

    Participants: Iná, Yan, Fateme, Iivi, Elvi
    Mixtape Title: Cough.Lab
    Concept description:
    The sound of coughing became so contagious these days. Poor sound. We wanted to free the cough sound from the COVID-19 prejudice – as a way to eradicate prejudice on a bigger scale. But in the process of working together in the digital realm – shifting between three continents behind our screens – our track became more - more than a re-evaluation of the cough/deconstruction of prejudice- it became the sound of human breathing in many forms and the sound of collaboration.
