Commissioned by Diaspore, "Alluvium Rocks" attempts to give voice to the more-than-human. What stories are being told? Can a history recounting the interdependencies between species emerge to offer new realities? In this first episode, "The Great Conversation (still as someone passes by)," we follow the soil as narrator and witness to the unfolding histories of human cultivation and environmental violence. The story seeks to make audible the soil as a living global infrastructure, a container for past and present cultivation knowledges and extraction processes and how these stories can be told through something we often unknowingly depend on for the survival of humans and non-human ecologies alike. Words and soundscape by artists Marleen Boschen, Charles Pryor, Sara Rodrigues and Lou Atessa. [Repeats Monday 2.30pm.]
