Everything is Sound with Fossilised Frequencies

Exclusively for SAVVYZΛΛR, Fossilised Frequencies presents an acoustic triptych entitled Everything is Sound. This three-piece sound sculpture starts with an hour soundscaping the plural worlds of language. You will hear a symbiosis of different languages ranging from the animal and the human, to water-based and land-rooted sonorities, and tones from interplanetary systems. All these forms of communication generate variations of vibrations: our ears and bodies are offered an acoustic journey from the micro to the macro. Fossilised Frequencies cruises the universe to render audible the noises of the visible and invisible.

In tune with our current exhibition HERE HISTORY BEGAN. Tracing The Re/Verberations Of Halim El-Dabh, today we invite you to listen to words and music of Halim El-Dabh whose breadth of compositions, engrained philosophies, and work with myriad sonic tools have inspired and catalyzed our multi-winged project in his honor, presently active at SAVVY Contemporary.
Through the hour you listen to excerpts of a conversation between Halim El-Dabh with Kamila Metwaly which took place in 2017. The words are woven through and with music and sounds from El-Dabh through his 70 years of work will be featured. Join us as we experience the imbued knowledge of his musical legacy through his rhythms, tones, and spectrums of aurality.
