Chinatown Beats, 2016-2017
Our stories reverberate through sound. Our voices, our songs, even the sounds outside our windows help define who we are. As part of her Social Practice Lab residency, Rachel Ishikawa used created Chinatown Beats to explore the ways we define place and self through sound in the Chinatown North community, and to transform everyday sounds into narratives that map out our own sonic culture.
The audio portraits created with YAW were featured in The Beat of Resistance.
