Line of Control: Sounds from India and Pakistan

Delivered... Arshia Fatima Haq | Scene | Wed 28 May 2014 5:45 am

Arshia Haq from the LA based Discostan collective made an exclusive mix for Norient. She is presenting us forgotten scores and current field sounds from India and Pakistan. Listen to this colorful mix and dive into the sounds of the Indian subcontinent.

Making a mix from the sounds of the subcontinent proved challenging as these are the sounds I am closest to, so I tried to use that to my advantage. What I came up with is a personal audio memoir, using scores from lesser known films, children’s songs, and field recordings of my own in Pakistan and India (thus the raw quality of some of what you’ll hear), and playing on nostalgia, exile, the tension between the sensuality of the soundtracks and the austerity of the religious dogma over loudspeakers (both Muslim and Hindu) as well as political broadcasts in these places.
