Spectral sonic cartographies

Nahuel Cano will take the first steps toward developing a cartographical practice of listening and mapping "spectral sonic geographies”.  His practice attunes perception to the sonic networks that define territories, that articulate the inhabiting of places, and also to the absences, the invisible, the ghosts that are intertwined in the fabric of territories. Listening and sound cartographies may offer ways of orienting oneself, and of getting lost, of making present worlds that collide but resonate with the visible world, having the potential to redistribute the politics of the visible and the audible.
