In this session, Annie Goh will present sounds and reflections into archaeoacoustics, or acoustic archaeology which draw on her fieldwork in Isturitz and Arcy-sur-Cure in France and Chavín de Huantar in Peru.

As part of All the Birds Sing Bass, this listening session attempts to understand the echo – from its dominant conceptualisation in patriarchal Eurocentric histories – as a feminist and decolonial material-semiotic sonic figuration. Weaving a narrative from field recordings and other sounds to theorisations of sounding situated knowledges, Goh explore the ‘elsewheres’ that echoes can open up for knowledge itself.
