The work emerged out of a project entitled “Sounding the Margins” which involved a set of archive visits (to Mayday Rooms, British Library Sound Archive, Her Noise Archive) and related guest talks on histories of activism, protest and collective practice. The group present an audio journey which embraces experimental sound pieces, oral history and conversations between participants.

The title sry connection dipped: What do you hear? pays tribute to Ultra-red’s listening protocols and practices of sharing in careful and communal listening, at the same time that it reflects the imperfect, partial and fallible online communications as the project moved online due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
