VIEW TRAILER!

“We often disregard sound’s imperialistic tendencies pushing it into the background as white noise or muzak but the possibilities of the exploitation and weaponization of sound are vast: sonic weapons; long range acoustic devices; torture; psychological warfare; a tool to discourage loitering in public; sound has the power to dominate. To control.

Culturally we want to experience things sonically together, we congregate toward organized sound: parades; concerts; protests. Sound has the power to shape cultural experiences, and to disseminate ideas, it’s existence is directly tied to the air we breath.

The videos in LOUD!!! focus on the notion of sound being a dominant element that drives a piece forward. Instead of prioritizing the image (which is often the case in moving image works) artists in LOUD!!! instead work more actively with sound, often incorporating it directly into the frame of image itself. Instead of tuning sound out and pushing it toward the background, the works in this program remind us of the potentials sound offers.” (Nothing To See Here)
