An ongoing project between the Helsinki-based artist and Video in Common (ViC), the event is a continuation of its first iteration, called Listen to Yourself: Sound Design Tutorial with Pappa Modig,during a residency at London’s Space in August. The performance presentation is an interactive sound design workshop, produced by both audience and artist, while running through the clichés, ideologies and political meanings of certain sonic elements.
Questioning the role of a designer in ascribing value, power and status to cultural production, the video material (produced with ViC in London) stems from a filming session around Hackney Wick, with Modig performing empty gestures in front of cameras, destined to be given meaning only at the edit.
