NYC Tenants’ Know Your Rights

Call for Writing on Music & Politics


Over here at Interference Archive we are in the heavy organizing stages of our upcoming exhibition about the intersection of music and politics: if a song could be freedom. . .  Organized Sounds of Resistance.

So much of what is politically important about music is rooted in our experience of listening to it, in how it becomes the soundtrack to meaningful and transformative experiences in our lives. We are looking for people to respond to the prompt: What song or album has been politically influential to you, and how?

Please send us your thoughts (250 – 1000 words is perfect) in an email to music@interferencearchive.org by May 15, 2015. We hope to incorporate a number of your responses into our exhibition design, along with the music that inspired your writing.
