Episode 1: (PRESENCE, or ) A METAPHYSICS OF ABSENCE – with Resina & Lea Bertucci
Sound Propositions the podcast has the same mission statement as the written Sound Propositions features: to share in depth discussions with artists whose work we love, to delve into the details of their creative practice. The inaugural episode of our new podcast, Sound Propositions, features interviews (with Resina and Lea Bertucci) and field-recordings recorded during the 2018 UNSOUND festival in Krakow, Poland. (You can read my review of the festival here.) The theme of this year's festival was "Presence," and so that became the point of departure for my interviews, particularly the ways in which absences can also be felt as a "presence." Special thanks to Resina, Lea Bertucci, Ryan Diduck, Corey Bracken, and the entire Unsound team.
