Multiplicity of Resonant Disruption – Act I: Cacophony

Multiplicity of Resonant Disruption is a sound installation in 2 acts considering the insurrectionary force of sounds, voices, and reverberating forms of communication of trans and queer individuals across the world. Radio Kootwijk served the Dutch government in the management and continued colonization of Indonesia vis-a-vis sound and radio waves. The radio transmitter directly implemented Western technologies of communication and control, strengthening the colonial presence throughout Southeast Asia. 

In Act I: Cacophony, the multitude of sonic vibrations form a language of refusal that amplify the marginalized sonic-activist archives of Mavi Veloso, creating a rupture in the architectural and historical silencing of the space.

Multiplicity of Resonant Disruption – Act II: Envelopment

Multiplicity of Resonant Disruption is a sound installation in 2 acts considering the insurrectionary force of sounds, voices, and reverberating forms of communication of trans and queer individuals across the world. Radio Kootwijk served the Dutch government in the management and continued colonization of Indonesia vis-a-vis sound and radio waves. The radio transmitter directly implemented Western technologies of communication and control, strengthening the colonial presence throughout Southeast Asia. 


In Act II: Envelopment, the stories of Phillipino trans-activist, artist and filmmaker Ram Botero become sonic agents in problematizing and interrupting colonial narrativity and the simplification of modern racist grammar through the sharing of pre-colonial mythologies that register in ephemerality a her-story/his-story of alternative modes of communication, marginalized connections and living in-spite-of.
