Theatrum Mundi invites you to celebrate the launch of the third publication in the Sonic Urbanism series edited by &beyond for Theatrum Mundi. In this edition, contributors listen to the cacophony of human noise to hear the voices of non-human agents. From parrots and pigeons to crystals and electrical substations, the complex depth and variety of city soundscapes reveal new ways to understand life among urban ecologies.
The physical publication comes with a parallel digital publication that can be read, heard and watched at sonic.city. Join us for an evening of discussion, performance and music, opening with a screening of Your Mating Call Is Important To Us: A Sonic Apothecary for Synanthropes, by The Sousrealists, 2021 (8 minutes).
The screening will be followed by a discussion with The Sousrealists, and Sonic Urbanism contributors John Bingham-Hall (Theatrum Mundi), George Kafka (&beyond), and Matilde Meireles. The evening will also feature a live performance of Sunnyside by Matilde Meireles, and culminate with a selection of tracks evocative of the non-human in many of its incarnations by Theatrum Mundi curator Andrea Cetrulo.
