This event brings together live musicians, DJs and musicmakers for an exploratory live public listening session. Skin Deep plays host to a conversation about politics, music, identity and style in order to present an alternative to the ways in which we usually experience music and sound. Skin Deep Sonic Transmissions draws attention to the value of collective listening and intimate conversation. The event is being livestreamed and will be released online via the Skin Deep website for all to enjoy. This is the first in a series of sessions hosted by Skin Deep, with different artists, sound systems and audiences each time, exploring our relationship to sound, music, culture and race.
Skin Deep is a London-based multimedia platform that amplifies voices of colour through the discussion of race and culture. Skin Deep is a counter-movement to the way in which culture is often simultaneously racialised and depoliticised in the mainstream. Their aim is to create a space where a diverse range of heritages, tastes, styles, stories, sounds, traditions and imaginings can be explored both creatively and politically.
