DOCUMENTATION: #SONICWILDERNESS #NUSASONIC Yogyakarta, Indonesia 2018

if the score is a potential of what can happen, a future possibility, then applied to the mycelium score in reference to @RadMycology suggests to think about sound as GROWING, initiating connections, growing into decentralized networks





in progress: intersectional trans-corporeal-feminist #sonicwilderness is a collaborative practice that leads musicians, artists, thinkers and interested outside, to engage physically and sonically with the environment and public space through listening, interacting, playing the field, by exploring sonic realities with a socio-political critical lense.

These interventions are inspired by Radical Mycology, a grassroots movement that examines network organization by looking at the decentralized growth and resilience of mycelial networks and Stacy Alaimo s feminist book: Bodily Natures: Science, Environment, and the Material Self, which suggests: trans-corporeality as a way to view the relationship between humanity and the world around us as fluid
