loss. nothing. memorial. is a sound installation to honor and provide ceremony for musicians, singers and choir directors lost to HIV/AIDS in the Black Church between 1980 and 2005. The public health crisis impacted and was consequential to the social reality, theological understanding and sound practices of the black church. Using the sounds of musicians on the Hammond organ that died of AIDS-related complications between 1980 and 2005 as the sonic foundation, loss. nothing. memorial. is an immersive sound event.
Please use your headphones and smart phone devices to navigate the space at your leisure. As you wander, you will hear sounds of musicians, of sermons, of whispers and sounds of despair, but also sounds of joy and celebration.
