With Matthew Arthur Williams

How is attunement important to practice?

Working with research related to state violence and oppressive systems we used sound and visual methods to consider attunement in its widest sense. Through consciousness, reflection and imagination we explored the importance of process. Process as practice, but process as a form of resistance. We considered deep listening techniques and share in improvisation sound responses in creating a labyrinth of meaning. Included in the sessions is an artist talk with musician and artist Alicia Matthews.
