iniva is pleased to share the recent soundscape ‘The Sound I Sea’ by artist Shenece Oretha in collaboration with Open School East’s Despacito Art School children and Iniva’s Drift Pavilion, a series of radical re-imaginings of Europeanness which reflect on the entanglement between land and water, movement and m/otherlands, in the forging of new identities and subjectivities.

Together they explored the sound of waves and movement and how they relate to the movement, migration and relation of people. Through various ways of composing they created a fun sculptural sound piece that reflects movement of sound, sea and people.
