Zine №5: SOUND

As the pandemic progresses, Soupbone has been spending more and more time in recorded soundscapes. We have been modulating the sounds that surround us to be more productive and also to relax. We’ve been questioning our relationship to noise, and our own taste in music. What does it mean for sound to be good or bad and who gets to decide? How does music make us feel? How are our relationships with ourselves and others shaped by sound? This winter, we listen closer to the sounds around us as we analyze our relationships to noise, music, silence, and listening. We invite you to listen with us.
