Sounding the housing crisis - Investigation Questions [bonus]

Last fall I shared the first episode of Sounding the Housing Crisis, a bilingual (French/English) podcast by a collective of Montreal sound artists and tenants. I co-produced the eight episode series with Hubert Gendron-Blais, organizing and editing the contributions from each member of the collective. The project was partially inspired by the “militant sound inquiry” of Ultra-Red. In 2021, Ultra-Red co-founder Dont Rhine visited Montreal for a seminar at McGill, followed by a workshop/performance as part of Echoes of a Distance, Music, Protest and Community in Confined Times, organized by Hubert and The International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation (IICSI). I'm now sharing the eighth episode in this feed as well, since it is one where I think my fingerprints are most visible.

This eighth and last episode of the podcast 'Réverbérations d'une crise: Sounding the Housing Crisis' looks back to the elaboration of the investigation question that guided the project's the composition process, addressing in passing issues of mental health, precarity, the role of artists and gentrification.
