Film screening: SOA (by Raquel Castro)
Soundscapes, silence and noise, all sound spectra, from infra to ultrasound, frequencies and rhythm. But also, ecology, citizenship, equality and urban policies. From listening as a catalyst for transformation and sounds that are part of our everyday life places. How the soundscape affects us and how we are responsible for the sound we generate?
For several years, sound artist and documentary filmmaker Raquel Castro recorded interviews with sound artists, soundwalkers and sound theorists concerning the role of sound and listening in human life, as well as about the education towards improving our aural literacy. SOA was premiered last year and at this event, it will be introduced for the first time to the Czech audience.
