Sonic Entanglements endeavors to expand the historiographical archival corpus to include the early sound media and technologies as primary sources for the theoretical reflection of the Southeast Asian cultural history of modernities and the region’s entanglement with modern globalization. The four-year project will be embedded at the Amsterdam School of Cultural Analysis and the Theatre Studies Institute in the University of Amsterdam. During the project launch, Dr. yamomo will discuss the content of the research, introduce the Sonic Entanglements website, and present the trailer of the project’s podcast.
