Selective Listening

Regina Martinez, also remembered as selective listening, experiences sound as records of our connections and departures. Her current experiments draw from an archive of infinitely personal recordings she relates to as soundmarks: her father's hands cleaning dried beans, drumline rehearsal after school, the flap of our clothes outside on the line, the creak of a gate to home. Each captured moment becomes its own instrument, its own layer of composition, and a washing and wringing out of memory meant to be overheard like a poem again and again. Her practice evolves through commissioned installations, dj sets, live performance and sound design for experimental film. For Lumpen Radio, she produces the show, “alluvia’s fluid.”
