Sound Exchange Souvenir and Radio18B

Sound Exchange Souvenir and Radio18B

2010-2011. Sound installation, performance.

Sound Souvenir Exchange took place as a public event during ‘Town Meeting April’ devised by CASCO, Office for Art, Design and Theory.

The project is also the result of a one-year long research on domestic soundscapes and its representation and it was presented at the ‘Grand Domestic Revolution’ exhibition at CASCO, Office for Art, Design and Theory, in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

“In the spirit of Queen’s Day, Patricia Sousa will carry out a ‘sound souvenir exchange’ on the front steps of the apartment. Engaging with the Queen’s Day public, Patricia will record and exchange sounds throughout the day, as part of her GDR project, ‘Radio 18B’. The multiple sonic performances generated from the neighbourhood will form a collective soundscape – an imaginative alternative to the “prefabricated dreams” of lifestyle fetishism.” Maiko Tanaka (CASCO)
