Towards Listening, Dub, and Memory Edward George
Towards Listening, Dub, and Memory with Edward George
Auraldiversities: Entanglement – Lecture
Session Two: Gathering Place
In this online session, George will speak on listening, dub, and memory, and will reference both his The Strangeness of Dub (Morley Radio) and Sound of Music (Threads Radio) shows.
Edward George is a writer, broadcaster and photographer. A founder of Black Audio Film Collective, George wrote and presented the ground-breaking science fiction documentary Last Angel of History. He hosts Sound of Music (Threads Radio), and Kuduro – Electronic Music of Angola (Counterflows/NTS). George’s series The Strangeness of Dub (Morley Radio) dives into reggae, dub, versions and versioning, drawing on critical theory, social history, and a deep and a wide cross-genre musical selection. The series will form the basis of a book. George's completed, yet-to-be published photo-poetry book, Dub Housing, forges a relation between photography, architecture and dub against the backdrop of the Covid pandemic. Recent work includes Genealogies of Rock Against Racism, a live broadcast of The Strangeness of Dub at London's Barbican Centre and The Strangeness of Jazz, a live presentation at London's Cafe Oto.
