This sound archive consists of audible extracts of works and interviews by Lawrence Abu Hamdan together with specific fragments of juridical listening and speaking collected from a wide range of sources including the trials of Saddam Hussein and Judas Priest, UK police evidence tapes, films such as Decoder and readings from texts like Italo Calvino's A King Listens. Listeners can access this collection of tracks articulated through listening-seminars and voice-activated audio installations in which individual components of the archive are pooled, extracted and turned into longer audio essays, texts and investigations. The narratives folded into these 3-minute segments expand and combine, generating narrative compositions and essays that weave through the content of this archive and plunge listeners into the heart of a discussion about the relationship between listening and politics, borders, human rights, testimony, truth and international law.
