Abstract (English)

This recording by Friz and Williams explores sound as a site of resistance. The artists introduce the piece and describe the sounds of the protests recorded in Quebec City during the Summit of the Americas as “aural occupations.” In opposition to the singular perspective of the mainstream media, the artists present the space of protest as complex and multi-layered, while furthering the sounds of dissent in radiophonic space.
