Intersecting Mediterraneans: A Sonic Submergence is a new digital commission, in the frame of EXN Lagoon


    Intersecting Mediterraneans is a long-term collaborative project by Daniela Medina Poch and Elizabeth Gallón Droste, which elaborates on the pluralisation and complication of geographical imagination of singular Mediterranean, through the orchestration of encounters with Mediterranean regional rivers. The project follows the flowing of calm, furious or disappearing/ed waters, able to carry the sea uphill and inland, while moving across longings and exhaustions of the Mediterranean(s). At the core lies storytelling in many voices, tones and languages, which casts an intimate light on individual and collective stories of entanglement and tough-to-break nodes, while giving sonic body to histories of reciprocal oblivion, irreducible divide between localities –physical and fabricated– and experiences –lived and desired.

  The new digital configuration of the Intersecting Mediterraneans project, Intersecting Mediterraneans: A Sonic Submergence, invites visitors to dive into an apparently chaotic sonic landscape, which weaves together fragments of shattered cumulative repertoires of memories, affects and knowledges, of both waters and lands. Each of the rivers appears here as a lone thread, to be pulled out from a fabric that is never fully graspable. 

  Some rivers are being voiced by relational biographies, others are present only at the intersections, in the moments of silence. Some rivers are rivers no more, but resist solely as underwater ripples, emerging momentarily, through distant yet persistent echoes. Some of the rivers, which run somewhere between mountains and seas, are spoken by unheard voices. All participate in Mediterraneans that swallow as many possibilities and doubts as are the voices uttering their tales.
