Assignment #7

My soundscape is called “Cyrens & Siborgs” and was inspired by María Fernández’s Postcolonial Media Theory and her commentary on cyborg feminism and women of color as cyborgs.

After going through all of the sounds in our class archive, there were a lot of metallic/mechanical sounds that I was interested in using. But I also wanted to incorporate the softer and more organic sounds like water and people’s voices. Additionally, I wanted to make something that was eerie and potentially unsettling to listen to. That made me think of siren songs, which are beautiful yet deadly. I thought it would be cool and futurist to imagine sirens transforming into cyborgs and creating a hybrid species between the two.
