Saturday Night Special: if a song could be freedom…Organized Sounds of Resistance
Wave Farm’s WGXC-FM is please to present a special durational broadcast of “if a song could be freedom…Organized Sounds of Resistance,” produced during summer 2015 for Interference Archive. As an integral part of the exhibition, organizers asked over a dozen musicians, music historians, and activists to compile annotated playlists, or “Mixtapes,” exploring the intersections of music and movements. The results are the ten programs produced by Felipe Mujica & Johanna Unzueta, Skot! Oh, Phil Andrews, Regine Basha, Dan S. Wang, Tom Roe, Xaviera Simmons, Ganzeer, submedia.tv, and Brandon Bauer; which comprise this special broadcast.
Music has been at the core of hundreds of political and social struggles across the globe. With if a song could be freedom . . . Organized Sounds of Resistance, Interference Archive examines the social context for landmark recordings, the relationship between music makers and on-the-ground organizing, and how visual aesthetics complement musical production and circulation.
We would like to thank Galen Joseph-Hunter and Tom Roe, of WGXC ,for coordinating this broadcast.
