Khadea Kuchenmeister – “Deep Lake Murmurs“
TX: 7am – 7:45am
Deep Lake Murmurs is a mediative speculative fiction on diaspora, water and imagined borders. Accompanied by recordings of various rivers, a soft gliding voice ascends and descends in prayer, creating a psychic vessel for spirits travelling off an imprisoning island. Taking inspiration from the African water deity Mami Wata, it brings together a resistance to post-colonial borders with layers of ancient water folklore.
Vocals by Fiyin Fakunle.
