I made a track called ‘Sound the Alarm’ for the Cities and Memory Protest and Politics project
You can also find it and all the other entries here:
The sound file I chose (Sound Number 34) to make a track from features people protesting Jeff Sessions and his racist agenda in the US.
The woman leading this ‘street theater’ demonstration speaks with passion and urgency, and I wanted to position her voice as the main element of my track.
My aim is to have the sense of alarm she conveys- the alarm I too feel in relation to the hateful rhetoric, unlawful behaviour and unconscionable agenda of Trump and the GOP- to be the driving force in my piece.
