Talking to Each Other: A Collective Sounding Project - Aimee Louw & Paul Tshuma in conversation with Simone Lucas

June 13th 2021

A multi-media, collaborative research-creation project directed by Simone Lucas, with Access in the Making Lab (AIM) and the Feminist Media Studio (FMS), in partnership with Accessibilize Montreal and Suoni Per Il Popolo.

In this project, the FMS, AIM, and our community partners want to collectively work, tinker and experiment with the frictions and challenges between technologies, access and critical forms of media making. To explore these questions, we are launching Talking to Each Other: A Collective Sounding Project. Over the course of this initiative, FMS & AIM members and affiliates will be invited to create recorded narrative, interview, sound art, and multi-sensorial pieces on the theme of access, sound and technology.The project emerges out of the FMS’s recent installation of a sound recording booth in its production suite. In purchasing this equipment, the FMS was excited to make sound recording accessible to student members for whom access to sound studios on campus and off was frequently restricted.

The second event in the first phase of this project is a conversation with expert access consultants, sound producers, and members of the local disability justice collective Accessibilize Montreal, Aimee Louw and Paul Tshuma!
