The Tube

Janet Rogers (Mohawk/Tuscarora) | Canada | 2017 | 16 min | Soundscape

A collection of sounds gathered from inside and outside the London Underground in July 2017, The Tube as culture includes land and community, commerce and politics. It is a place, where many voices come together on equal ground and is an equalizer and neutralizer of societal status and racial and sex-based inequalities. These collective voices - human voices, electronic voices, industrial voices and creature voices - have been processed together into a symphony emphasizing each voice separately at different intervals. Trains come. Trains go.

Janet Rogers is a Mohawk/Tuscarora writer from Six Nations who works in the genres of poetry, spoken word performance poetry, video poetry and recorded poetry with music. Janet is also a radio broadcaster, documentary producer, media and sound artist.
