Dr. Debra Spitulnik Vidali and Dr. Kwame Phillips (PhD, Emory Anthropology, 2014) exhibited their ethnographic sound art project entitled “Kabusha Radio Remix: Your Questions Answered by Pioneering Zambian Talk Show Host David Yumba (1923‐1990)” in London on April 23-24 as part of The Sound of Memory Symposium.
The Sound of Memory Symposium explores creative works and ideas situated at the interface of composers working in acoustic ecologies and artists working within social ecologies, where the primary engagement is a form of sonic ethnography. The overarching theme is an exploration of how individual and cultural memory resonates in the shaping of social space. The Symposium explores the broad domain of acoustic ecologies and soundscape’s engagement in place. The symposium is co-hosted by the Sound-Image-Space Research Centre (School of Music and Fine Art, University of Kent), the School of Sound, and Goldsmiths, University of London.
