    "The Future of play" - PILOT EPISODE - by Imwen Eke

    "The Future of play" - PILOT EPISODE - by Imwen Eke

    In this episode, we give ourselves permission to play and imagine what Play might look like 100 years into the future.

    This Podcast emphasises new perspectives and new narratives in Play that include Black voices and new frames of reference alongside those that already exist.

    Inspired by the question What would a world look like where people and the plants thrive?

    I invited nine guests to open a dialogue and imagine play 100 years into the future

    We speculate, discuss and conceive possibilities.

    Through a series of prompts, I ask how they would want to frame this world. From personal imagining to a broader societal context.

    Are we heading for utopia, dystopia or somewhere in-between.

    ‘Sounds from outer space’ by Konduku (Ruben Üvez)

    ‘Sounds from outer space’ by @kondukukonduku(Ruben Üvez).

    THE MOON BAR, A CELEBRATION OF PLURALITY AND THE MULTIVERSE. As part of The University of the Undergrounds MOON BAR, we host a concoction of individuals from STEAM. For the occasion, Konduku makes a special hr long moon soundscape.

    On Monday 7th Dec, from 10 - 7 pm, The University of the Underground will host a non-stop live stream, of all things multiverse, moon and everything in between extraterrestrial lands. A celebration of all multiverses, a celebration of plurality as we know it. In the symposium, you will meet with someone who climbed the Mount Everest and advocate for silence to someone who talks to wolf at night, drag queens and cult leaders and the usual NASA and SETI (Search for extraterrestrial intelligence), but also an explosives expert and as if that was not enough- we ALSO have a MOON CAKE, tarot reading and all. Basically absolute chaos in extraterrestrial lands. Christmas before Christmas.

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

    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.

    Soundscape Mixtape Workshop with Colette Aliman - Cough.Lab

    ‘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.
