National Sonic Territory
Published in March 2018
The thesis revolves from the politics of sound and its affirmative qualities to the masses; how could it summon a community, and formulate a sense of solidarity? By the use of musical sound and non-musical sound, how could a community reject the others, to draw its political and physical territory? How does a nation-state employ sound to defend and how one use it to attack? Sometimes strong cultural sounds are appropriated by a modern nation, just to deliver a sense of futility–to resist is futile. Birds sing to make noise as a tool for marking territorial boundaries. Do we make noise to give the same statement?
