The project explores political and corporal performativity in the construction of meaning through voice. The aim is to collaborate with the practice of collective voices capable of imagining and producing possible and livable futures.
The artist duo asks: Is it possible through exploring new vocal practices to generate instances of cognitive entanglement with other beings collaboratively? What stories can be told through these voices? What futures can they imagine and produce?
These questions guide a research that conceives humans as one of the millions of species adapted to air capable of producing sound. The research draws into other species’ strategies of voicing and communication to produce new vocalities. Radio, here, is an air-adapted species of the machine kind.
