nganggurnmanha : sound dust
sound dust is an accumulation of listening, time and awareness
we are asking you to move with us through a ritual of gathering.
collecting your ‘sound dust’
feel the sky; the earth.
take off your shoes.
be still ________ what do you notice?
sit down _________ what do you hear?
move around ______ what draws your attention?
let your body remember; it is air, earth, texture.
record* your breath.
what did your body sense that your ears didn’t?
what did your phone hear that you didn't see?
based on this awareness, find what draws your attention and listen deeply.
tap into a rhythm.
scratch out a texture.
echo a forgotten voice.
now record a sound generated between you and the world.
1 send us a recording (up to 5 minutes) using your smartphone* - no need to edit
2 name your file with a description, a location, or a timestamp
3 send your sound dust to us on insta @nganggurnmanhasounddust or at nganggurnmanha-sounddust.com
nganggurnmanha means ‘listening, hearing, thinking, remembering’ in Wajarri language.
