Louder Whisper Coded sounds in connecting 'Spokes'

Curated by Meena Vari

A collection of sound narratives that identifies with Michel de Certeau’s idea that orality is everywhere. Orality has an extraordinary capacity to extend its reach beyond words and languages, and this compilation is an exploration of this rich, varied and intangible territory. Certeau brilliantly says that there is life when places of speech exist in any form and it continues to do so in various forms and function. This collection is an attempt to highlight the fact that conversations somehow or the other will make its way into each and every aspect of life, situations and without being noticed contribute to a change/reform and/or revolution. Nine artists practicing and living in India, through the medium of sound present their interpretations; it ranges from coded sounds, dialogues, conflicting messages, and intimate conversation.
