Echoes From The Borderlands is a sound piece that documents the histories of violence against land and bodies in the US-Mexico borderlands. It works like a sonic road trip that begins in the pounding waves of the Pacific Ocean in the Tijuana /San Diego border, and moves eastward throughout 24 hours --from sunrise to sunrise-- until it reaches the wetlands of the Texan coast. Through the merging of narratives, soundscapes, voices, melodies, rhythms, archival recordings, and sound constellations, the piece connects issues that have marked the borderlands, such as the genocide of native peoples, extractivism, nuclear testing, migration, femicide, vigilantism, human trafficking, and mass detention. These stories of plundering and exploitation, however, are also met with stories of resilience and resistance.
