Collecting identities through music
If the earth can hear, what will you say?
Ears. Nowadays, they’ve been plugged with all sorts of contraptions that make the noise-polluted world as far away from the music-loving commuter (or disinterested pupil) as possible. It is detachment no one really hears.
At first it seems atrocious to bring the often noise-laden sounds of humans in the quiet, serene environment of Sambalikhaan. But here, the environment itself takes part in an exchange: the exchange of identities through sound.
Sawsawan invites everyone to share a song or two, to take part in this exchange: wind whistling through trees&mp3. Time to unplug those earphones (yes that’s right, here it’s no good keeping your music [identity] to yourself) and plug those players into our ultra-cool hi-tech speakermachinethingies. Then go and say, I AM STEREO.
(The songs played through the installation will be collected, documented and later uploaded onto a website.)
Free the ears! Share what’s on your SighPod!
Sawsawan unite! (Mark Salvatus, Mark Magistrado, & Lauren Villarama)
