Full house in the Cinema
The Cinema at Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts was full to the brim when activist and artist Cedrik Fermont lectured on the topic "De-colonising the History of Sound art and Electronic Music".
Fermont pointed to the absence of written documentation and colonial ignorance within institutions as some of the reasons behind the prevailing lack of knowledge in the field.
Listen to the lecture:
The lecture took place on 17 April and was hosted by the freestanding course Sound as Critical practice which explores the capacity of sound as a form of resistance in the field. The next open lecture in the series will take place on 22 May and is titled Sonic Agency – and the right to listen with the world renowned sound theorist and artist Brandon LaBelle.
