Caudales por todos lados: mapeo sonoro, movimiento, testimonio y escucha amplificada (Medellín, Antioquia, 23-29.10.2022)
This workshop was developed in the city of Medellín, Colombia, as part of the 10th edition of the sonic arts and listening festival Auditum, with the theme “Caudal.”
Medellín is traversed by caudals of different kinds and from all the places. In this workshop, we experimented different techniques of sonic registering in movement and with amplified hearing, and considered our own voice and the sounds of our bodies as constituent parts of the ecology of the city, using thus sonic registering as a form of intervention. We connected with the flows that make and traverse Medellín through our ability of intervening in them. All the participants were locals from Medellín, so they were able to record in different places around the city, from the center to its margins, with a nuanced sense of its history and following different kinds of flows. We edited together the recorded material, sharing different digital and analogue techniques for processing sound (into more sound, physical matter, writing, and moving image). Our final product was a multi-modal map presented on the large map of Medellín in the facilities of the Parque Explora.
