every object both separate and connected is staged as a questioning of the hierarchies embedded within euro-centric music. How they serve as a form of colonialism and forced hearing, and by how moving away from these ranked forms we can begin to create decentralised sounds and alternate ways of listening.Sounds have an innate ability to create spaces of empathy; the central tool in understanding ourselves, and more importantly, others. It allows us to commune with differing belief systems, decision-making, desires, and behaviours.The act of sound creation is inherently an act of inclusion and exclusion. It is the choosing of what reality is presented, and what reality is excluded.The show yearns to devalue high culture by presenting an alternative, but it also creates space for the audience to unpack their own perceptions of consuming and creating sounds. Here, I present one of the unending possibilities of sonic realities.
