Radio Alliances, Affective Listening & Collective Practices of the Undercommons
June 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm BST
with Silvia Maglioni, Stevphen Shukaitis and Graeme Thomson
How can we expand the potentialities of radio to be a membrane for affective connection between daily life practices, musical and sonic experimentation, voicings, radical pedagogy and political struggle? The gathering will begin with a presentation of the online radio/podcast platform firefly frequencies and will move gradually into a conversation about the potentialities of radio with particular focus on experimentation with hybrid forms. In the second part of the evening, we will share a project in progress to create an audio version of The Undercommons.
This project, initiated by Minor Compositions with the support of firefly frequencies, invites people to read out and record sections from the text that they have found particularly compelling or interesting. Keeping in mind the arguments put forward by Harney and Moten, the idea is to create a compilation of multiple voices and readings, bringing together and building upon the text, as a form of study through circulation and engagement. The session will end with a collective discussion and a potlatch dinner.
