Episode 2 of the Landscape of Hope podcast episode is now available

How does sound making provide an embodied way of knowing and feeling? In what ways can sounds express feeling and how does this become reinterpreted by listeners? Landscape of Hope explores some of these possibilities as they relate to discourses of hope and hate, but rarely do we discuss the residual effects of their media creations.

After all, making music with experimental sounds is a dialogue. This episode invites Landscape of Hope collaborators Angus Tarnawsky, Caitlin Chan, Piper Curtis, and Devon Bate to channel their reactions toward hate (as expressed in Landscape of Hope recordings) into new creations. Their improvised jams become sites of exploration into their own unique choices as creators. In this process, each collaborator provides context around their approach to sound making. The usual Landscape of Hope dialog is turned inside out as its creative output now becomes the source for further criticism and inspiration for new creative interventions.
