In general it is possible to establish a politics of sound as a category between the social dimension and the reception of sonic phenomena. Aiming to visualize and enhance this relationship, the project FRECUENCIAS is developed as a cross-city – Medellin, Bogota – and multidisciplinary initiative on multiple platforms: record labels, foundations, blogs, independent spaces. Through a constant exchange this project studies, socializes and reflects the politics of sound, as the main theme of the program.
How is listening defined in cities that are constantly growing? How do we adapt to these changes in our sonic environment?
As cities grow and their soundscapes are displaced, our capacity to adapt to a new place and its sounds makes us forget the traditional sounds and omit its various shades of noise.
The project serves as a creative space for different artistic approaches to coexist and work to solve issues such as noise pollution.
Six artists were asked tackle the different sound issues, setting up a sonic constant in the exhibition space. A special sound machine was built then to distribute and articulate the different sound products. This machine was set up in the centre of the exhibition, where the artists’ projects were played in a cohesive way generating a dynamic sound exchange.
