Breaking the Binary: Sound/Noise, Wanted/Unwanted, Masculine/Feminine: Panel

(2018-08-21) Breaking the Binary: Sound/Noise, Wanted/Unwanted, Masculine/Feminine

Cabaret du 4e (4th floor)


There is a growing sense that noise—whether as a concept, metaphor, or phenomena—matters to understanding our contemporary and highly-mediated society. Expanding on the parallels between noise and marginality, Breaking the Binary will span the poles of the conservative politics of silence to the transgressive possibilities of noise as a response to the reductive nature of binaries. Within these binaries, we find a multitude of liminal spaces, sites of resistance and emancipation.

The performative nature of music/art as political acts are at once embodied/disembodied as well as reflexive/unconscious. While building an intersectional understanding of the issues specific to female-identified, nb, queer, trans and other underrepresented body/identities and their continued practice within art and music communities, this panel will facilitate a redefinition and critical rethinking of the problematic binaries that exist: noise/music, wanted/unwanted, skilled/unskilled and masculine/feminine.

This event takes place in English.

For those of you not able to attend in person, we invite you to be at the symposium by connecting to the live stream.
