Uropa Ballet Audio Montage

Listening Center’s re-constructed audio montage addresses the recordings of the Royal Danish Ballet production Uropa, which include the dialogue and narratives of refugee performers and dancers, along with Mikkel Hess’s score. Much of the audio was fed into tape loop systems, which informed the integrations of disparate elements of the piece from successive performances. Dislocated voices speak to us, now heard, now muffled or obscured by radio static; some untouched passages simply tell their own story.

AKLOPOLIS/UR’LYEH Texte und Töne Edition

“Poet Paolo Javier and Ghost Box recording artist Listening Center collaborate on an exploratory assemblage of clangorous sounds and mysterious fragments of speech. Field recordings of a shadowy Filipino poet are the starting point for a darkened journey through an underworld of language and postcolonial haunting.”

Risograph publication. Fifth title in Flugschriften series. 100 copies only. All copies come with cassette and poster. A handful of posters are also available separately for purchase. (Please inquire.) Designed by Rob Carmichael, SEEN, and printed by Keegan Cooke at Circadian Press.
