Collaboration between Liverpool-based sound artist, Jon Davies aka Kepla, and New York-based media theorist and music writer, DeForrest Brown Jr.

Following in the style of verbatim theater, Brown - through private recordings in various urban public environments - recalls a palpable though unseen trauma while wading amidst Davies' digital processing of found social media audio.

The result is a psychopolitical meditation on Black America as a (de)territorialized subject.

Absent Personae was commissioned by Electronic Voice Phenomena as an interstitial spectre in transition, resonating with the sinister politics of pseudo-science histories, while speculating on identity as evasion and persona without orientation.The piece is a post-industrial Dérive considering the psychological liminal zones between old and new industry and urbanity, the changing landscapes of labor: a fractured genealogical memory trace obscured by intercepted signals and the liquidating flux of late capitalism.
