MALAYEEN.SPACE is a gift exchange of song; constellations of lullabies, village lore, and battlecries transmitted to and from their origin. You are invited to sing into the stars. Your song will return, having traversed the modulations of time and place. Each exchange is uniquely yours. The audio transformations are governed by the distance (in km) between you and the location of your song’s origin, your distance in time to this place, and the song’s intent. An interactive experience in itself, Malayeen.Space also creates a community-generated sound archive of our diasporic imagination.
This project is conceived and developed by Leyya Mona Tawil, in collaboration with Andrej Hrončo. It exists as part of Lime Rickey International’s Noise & Nation - an accumulation of transmissions in performance, sound, and digital form that attend to temporality and a post-border dream.
Malayeen.Space was created during Tawil’s Net//Work Residency, presented by the British Council in partnership with Wysing Arts Centre and Digital Arts Studios. The Net//Work Exhibition will take place online on the Wysing Broadcasts site between 4 May and 7 June 2021.
