FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS: WILD SOUNDS
October 3 – December 12
In film, the voices of men speak, allied with reason and language. Women’s voices, meanwhile, tend to only sound, though they do so across a variety of registers: from music and song, disembodied and relocated voice of technological devices, the learning and mimicry of social linguistic norms, and the politicized voices that shape constituencies and speak truth to power. As the technical term “wild sound” connotes a sound recorded independent of the image, the wild sounds organized in this series challenge social and filmic convention. More than mere speech or sound, the woman’s voice creates an alternative space where meaning is negotiated and generated anew.
