If sound waves are ever present, then every noise that ever was lingers through time and space. All the acoustic scales of the universe have been heard and radiate within every nerve of our bodies. However, the dominant noises of capitalistic development and globalisation deafens us to the sounds of the past, the metropolises' noise-pollution attempts to bury the vibrations of the Diaspora's history. Sounds to walk alone to resurrects the harrowing sounds of colonialism, displacement and ancestral rhythms. Sounds to walk alone to awakens the inherent vibrations of resistance, the fossilised noises of subversion, the resonant beats of protest - offering us an audible armour into unknown futures.
