Attuning to Sound Archives – Listening Session / Workshop
Mon, Feb 27, 2017, 10 am–6 pm
The workshop deals with sound recordings from prisoners of war in the German Halfmoon Camp, who originally came from today’s Pakistan and were recruited to fight for the British in World War I. The 100-year-old recordings are in Urdu, Balochi, Pashto, Punjabi and Hindustani and include tales, songs, personal stories, and sample words. The main idea of the workshop is to engage with the recordings directly through listening in order to explore their sensual potential.
With the Berlin based sound artist Gilles Aubry.
Closed workshop for students of BNU, LUMS and NCA.
At the School of Visual Arts and Design, Beaconhouse National University, Lahore
