Miguel Maravilla - Panawagan

from Sonic Memories by mediaartscommittee



This sonic collage confronts the notion that archival work functions only to preserve remnants of the past. Fragments of sound cluster together to form an aural archipelago of a people’s history; from a disembodied documentary narration, to karaoke song selections yearning for home, to the voices of farmers, migrants, colonizers, traitors, freedom fighters.
This music, and the voices which haunt the collective memories of the Filipino people, are active and present reminders of the ongoing trauma, violence, and conflict which rage on in the Philippines today.


from Sonic Memories, released April 6, 2021
Miguel Maravilla is a first-generation immigrant, organizer, self-taught artist and musician based on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam First Nations.
