Sound Design for Afro Hair Futurity Podcasts by Alix Bizet, 2020

Afro Hair Futurity is a project by Alix Bizet that was presented in the Self Design Academy of Eindhoven, Holland. It includes a series of podcasts comprising interviews of an artist, designer, filmmaker, anthropologists and trichologist reflecting on their knowledge, personal and professional experiences of Afro Hair. More generally this work aims to be a starting point to rethink Afro hair in a post-colonial context and as a performance of black futurity.

Sound design of Veravenus, by Darya Von Berner

Sound design of the art work Veravenus by Darya Von Berner, guest artist of the Festival de Luz y Vanguardia de Salamanca. The art work consists in a conceptual video-mapping around the motive of the birth of Venus, which was projected on the famous facade of the University of Salamanca during the Festival, in May 2018. The underwater sounds first convey the idea of an oceanic in-utero universe before Venus was born, and when the figure of Venus starts to emerge from the wall, the point of view changes : we can hear the waves breaking on the shore, louder and louder, illustrating Venus emerging from the water, until she is wiped off by the wind of history.
