Jules Gimbrone’s (CRF 2023) audio/text piece “Inside/Outside Oscillations,” produced while they were at Civitella, was recently released through MIT List. In the work, Gimbrone explores the blurring of boundaries between noise and signal as an epistemological and acoustic phenomena which they connect to the transgender experience. 

Gimbrone notes that they created this work in a cultural and political moment marked by legislative attacks on transgender bodies, labeling transness as a type of aberration, monstrosity, or stain to be reduced or removed, trends that they fear are leading to escalating state-sanctioned violence. 

“Inside/Oustide Oscillations” asks participants to read an accompanying text while listening to the audio. Engage with the piece here.
