Sound and the Prophecies of Change
All over the world, sound permits or accompanies every kind of communication. It continuously follows us, accompanying our actions like the score of a movie and influencing our emotions. Sound tells us about our origins. It defines who we are and it prophesies change. By controlling the soundscape, it is possible to influence time and reality; to change peoples’ lives. Sound is a major environmental issue.
In his lecture at Fabrica, Francis Kuipers takes his audience on a voyage into the world of sound interspersed with anecdotes about his movie collaborations with Godfrey Reggio, Philip Glass and Abel Ferrara.
