‘Other Registers’ is an immersive sound installation that uses software to transform data about police violence in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, into sound.
Visitors are invited to listen to official statistics for citizen and police deaths in the city between October 2009 (when Rio was selected to host the Olympics), and January 2016 (the start of the Olympic year), played as sound via a circle of eight loudspeakers.
Police violence is a long-standing issue in Rio, but the high numbers of killings often provoke surprisingly little public reaction. In London, a city itself home to a sizeable number of Brazilians, ‘Other Registers’ aims to create awareness of this issue through a physical and aesthetic experience.
‘Other Registers’ was developed by Nico Espinoza, Rafucko, Samuel Van Ransbeeck and Tori Holmes as part of Creative Lab produced by Festival Multiplicidade and People’s Palace Projects in partnership with CreativeWorks London, and supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Newton Fund.
‘Other Registers’ will be open on Thursday 15 November and Friday 16 November between 4:00pm and 8:00pm.
