AuthorsRobinson, A.
Abstract

This audio work emerges from an exploration of songs as temporal and affective phenomena for ‘Fluid Sounds’. Film-maker Jean Epstein proposed that: “It’s across the sound fields of the vast world that we must spread our microphones… the important thing is to place oneself in positions which do not exclude the unexpected” (Epstein 2012).
Working on the islands of Brittany, Epstein was engaged with the psychic, philosophical and affective resonances of altering the time of sonic experience through phonogenie: sound magic. For the Fluid Sounds workshops in Copenhagen and London, participants contributed ‘remembered songs’ in response to prescribed scores, working on-site and telematically from Faroe Islands and the UK: singing and discussing sources, memory and affect. The workshops explored disorientation through vocal performativity, sharing songs in the space between our embodied island selves.
