ESCUCHATORIO

ESCUCHATORIO IS A SPACE FOR LISTENING AS A POLITICAL ACT.

The collective appears in 2015, a year after the disappearance of 43 students in Ayotzinapa, a small village in southwestern Mexico. Under the theme “protest” we proposed a 43 hours radio broadcasting and listening of sounds from all over the world, collected through an open call: shouts, demonstrations, poems, texts, reflections, radio programs, soundpieces, songs or compositions…
We received 438 sounds, which we broadcasted trough 36 collaborators (radio FM, listening sessions in physical spaces, web radio, websites) from different parts of the world.
There are thousands of people shouting, who is listening to them? 
Could listening become an act of resistance?

Escuchatorio works as an independent online platform, and since then we have repeated the experience with other themes under the same principle : an open call for sounds with a specific date of broadcast on escuchatorio.net and all the collaborators. All participants simultaneously become the sound source (through their sound), listeners and broadcasters of Escuchatorio, they fully take part of this listeners’ community. 

In 2016 we made an Escuchatorio dedicated to the act of walking, as a possible act of resistance.
In 2017 we proposed the theme of Silence as an action, a possible protest, reflection or quest.

As a collaborative project, Escuchatorio is open to ideas, suggestions, feedbacks and transformations.
