LISTENING/SPEAKING IN TONGUES, by Amanda Gutierrez
This score was given away to participants to the soundwalk. We walked and stopped in three key spaces at Concordia University Campus that hold and represent a critical moment for marginalized communities in academia. Amanda Gutierrez read extracts from Gloria Anzaldua’s book, Borderlands/La Frontera, that provided context to the score’s instructions.
Amanda Gutiérrez uses sound and performance art to investigate how these aural conditions affect everyday life. Gutierrez is actively advocating listening practices while being one of the board of directors of the World Listening Project, formerly working with The Midwest Society of Acoustic Ecology, and currently as the scientific committee of the Red Ecología Acústica México. Currently, she is a Ph.D. student at Concordia University in the HUMA department.
