Sound Installation
TINIG (ti•nig) : n., Tgl, voice
This is a sensor activated listening station. Within the web are audio composites prepared by the artists using and as a response to the films participating in the Visual Documentary Project 2019. One group of composite are comprised of three different voices—voice of grievance, voice of the storyteller, and voice of the environment; with sound files that were harvested from the films. The other group of composite recorded reading voices of different criminal case information on drugs, human trafficking, domestic abuse, terrorism, child abuse, online sexual exploitation, and petty crimes.

What the artists are exploring in this work is the centrality of VOICE/ Tinig in the discourse of justice. Justice is when the voice is heard—either stating rights, emerging from abuse and disenfranchisement, or committing to common good; and violence is when the voice is not heard and heeded.

TUNOG (tu•nog) : n., Tgl, sound
This is a performance lecture on sound art. A scene report on the sound art practice in Manila will be delivered. Dayang will show samples of different sounding instruments that were created by artists in Manila. Datu will show his own work.
Audience would later be asked to participate in an impromptu performance using the sounding instruments brought by the resource persons and other available sound/ noise/ music instruments found around the area or brought by the audience themselves.

Audience are then encouraged to bring an instrument and to pre-register. https://forms.gle/C5izN5jc6gbLDy
