the amplification of souls
Book release. In this publication, Gilles Aubry presents elements from his sonic research in Christian charismatic churches in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. He explores the noise aesthetics of religious sound practices involving audio amplification, feedback, distortion and recording technologies. His documentation includes spiritual services, predications, sound-checks, rehearsals, a church video-archive, and film-soundtracks, as well as the preparation of an evangelization campaign in the city center.
The book is edited by Kathrin Wildner and Gilles Aubry
