DESCRIPTION
The third instalment of Ecoes considers the upcoming edition of Sonic Acts Festival 2022. Images and texts combine to reveal the elemental forces, synthetic or natural, that create tension in the world around us. Legacies of toxic infrastructures and hazardous waste, ways of reclaiming and refiguring definitions of ‘normal’ and ‘natural’, multi-scalar and multi-sited journeys of microbes, eels, glaciers, and unstable polder grounds that house nuclear infrastructures are visited throughout the pages of this voluminous issue. Contemporary theoretical discourse and speculative fiction on weather as a tool to destabilise knowledge traditions, interviews with artists whose practices invite us to look and listen anew, and one inlay, a map to move within non-normative time – all gather to create a rigorous, diverse, and visually striking edition.

Ecoes, the new periodic magazine of Sonic Acts Press, is a portmanteau of the words ‘ecology’ and ‘echoes’. The magazine about ‘art in the age of pollution’ launches a new trajectory for the Press as its first serial publication presenting artistic research year-round and independently of the biennial Sonic Acts Festival or the intervening Sonic Acts Academy.

Ecoes centres loosely around alternatives to the anthropocentric view that sees Earth and the non-human world as an endless resource. It continues Sonic Acts’ focus on presenting compelling artistic and critical perspectives reflecting on the rapidly changing world around us. Malleable in form and size, the magazine dedicates its pages to works and practices that engage deeply with the past, future or afterlives of environmental harm, toxicity and waste.
