In a time where the image and text are exploited, what dynamics does sound play? Can sound be subjectified or objectified? Who has ownership over sound? Is sound private? Can sound be stolen? What are the ethics of sound? What are the invisible borders sound creates in cultural and social spaces? How can sound be used to empower marginalized communities?
