In the thirteenth episode of Pop Culture Trenches, Elisa McCausland and Diego Salgado approach the literary and editorial fact. What is mainstream literatura, and wether it can be considered literature; what is outside literature, and if it performs any really subversive function. Nor do they forget the role of the writer and the reader; after all, and as always, with which everything starts and takes final sense.

With Gabriel Villota

According to Bruce Chatwin, the aborigines would leave a record of their journeys on foot through their songs: when these songs were sung, not only was there a mnemonic resource activated which facilitated the interpretation of a sound map, but likewise the sound of the song itself, from the voices and stories, turned material. The cities in which we live are saturated with noise: this saturation precludes listening, something for which silence is required. And that silence is produced away from the city centre, in places far away from power and capital.

This programme commences from the crossover of both ideas: the pursuit of the silence necessary to listen to the sound of the voice, on the one hand, and the observation of the body and its sound when moving, on the other, as a necessary support for the voice.

Gabriel Villota Toyos (Bilbao, 1964). DPhD in Audiovisual Communication and professor at the University of the Basque Country, where he was director of cultural programming, he has worked since the early 90s in various activities in relation to the sound and visual arts. His works have been published in numerous specialist magazines, catalogues and books. He recently curated the “Displaced bodies” and “Displaced bodies II” cycles on performance, dance and film at the Reina Sofía Museum (Madrid) and Azkuna Zentroa (Bilbao).

Episode #01. Tuesday 24th September, 6:00pm - 7:00pm: 'Los trazos de la canción (el paisaje construido por la voz)'

From the image of those maps generated by the song, as it appears in the book by Bruce Chatwin, and also following the long journeys of homo sapiens in their first intercontinental movements by the hand of the texts of the generator and anthropologist Luigi Cavalli -Sforza, we will talk with Professor Carmen Pardo (University of Girona) about these and other issues.
