Decolonization of listening

Leila Bencharnia is a sound artist, acousmatic performer and musician born in Morocco and based in Milan/Berlin. Child of a traditional Moroccan musician, their dialogue with sound began in the village near the Atlas Mountains where they spent their childhood. Bencharnia’s sound work comprises analog materials, including tapes, vinyl and synthesizers. Acknowledging radical listening as a means of transmitting knowledge, their practice aims to actively contribute to the decolonization of listening as a method for addressing social and political complexities.
Currently, Bencharnia’s research is centered on the language of indigenous Tamazight textiles, the mathematics of African fractals, and their interrelation with sound.

The event will take place at Fondazione Merz, via Limone 24, Turin

Free admission.
