Lou Drago’s recent research solicits potential affinities between all of those who are oppressed under neoliberalism in an earnest attempt to inspire a renewed sense of collective imagination among a disaffected and fragmented Left. This 'Radical Sociability' could be described as a way of reimagining social relations outside of racial capitalism and identity-based logic for collective liberation. For this episode of Plus X, they have created a concise version of the audible material from their listening-occasion, Fragments for Affinity, that combines this more theoretical/experiential research with their

ongoing sound and live-art practice. Drago uses the term 'listening-occasion' to describe their live-art format, the compound being inspired by friend and collaborator Isabel Lewis' concept of 'Occasions' and Pauline Oliveros' term 'deep-listening'.

Lou Drago is a Berlin-based multi-disciplinary artist who weaves onnections between anti-racist-queer-feminisms, meditation, the healing potential of sound, and the necessity for collectivity and connectivity during neoliberal times. Lou's recent artistic works combine their experiential-theoretical research with their sound-based practice to create what they call 'listening occasions' for being-together and being with oneself, with others. Since 2017 they have been curating and hosting Transience, an ambient, experimental, drone, glitch and experient focused show on Cashmere Radio. Each month a different guest responds to the brief of creating a temporary suspension of reality, where the listener can speculate on alternate futures free from systems of oppression.
