TRANSIENCE #19 with Lou Drago and Ab Uno
5 August 2019
This month we have invited Ab Uno to create a temporary suspension of reality, to offer relief from hetero-patriarchal, colonial anxieties.
They have the following to say about their mix, which has been created entirely from their own unreleased archive.
“The echo of the forest, the birds chirping, the spring of water and its branching courses, the systematic and punctual insects’ conversations, the ancestrals rhythms, the fuss in the hut along with the dark and lilting voice of the Mamo, these are all fleeting impulses of a landscape which has no accurate spatiotemporal connotation, but that constantly refers to our primordial origins. On the one hand, the aim is to create a deep immersion in these territories through a real practice of deep listening, which implies a high level of attention to the innermost details of sound. On the other hand, it’s the call for an unconditional act of listening that, somehow, can induce the listener through subtle reminiscences to a more personal interpretation of the landscape.
Ab Uno shapes synthetic sounds and acoustic elements carved into physical and cultural landscapes, into the voices of the wind or the unheard tales of tribal communities.”
Host, Lou Drago reflects about current LGBTQ+ issues in the first hour.
