Sound in Action
How do you make conditions for the sounds unheard, but also the voices unheard, or the words unread?
This time, Sound in Action is talking to the “Rolling Unrolling” crew - Ben Muñoz, Matisse A-M, and Anouk Hoogendoorn - who can be best described as sound carers, or perhaps facilitators of careful listening. Together, we gently invite our listeners to embark on a non linear sonic journey through topics of intimacy and memories, laughter and lullabies, gifs and modes of participating; with hope to arrive at tiny sounds: a concept Ben, Matisse and Anouk have been playing with - and invite you to do too.
RollingUnrolling is a technique practiced by Ben Muñoz, Matisse A-M and Anouk Hoogendoorn for composing with what isn’t there yet. They met through several collective works, at the Senselab and fuit.es. In this RollingUnrolling practice they work with tiny sounds; sounds that are just beginning. Tiny sounds are indeterminate and incomplete. They don’t differentiate themselves yet. There’s a feeling for where they could go, so they're helped along. And sometimes, something happens - in a way that it comes as a surprise. This surprise creates a shift, unrolling out of the practice and rolling back into it.
