From the Air
From the Air explores the sound of police helicopters at sites of political mobilisation and protest. The sound of helicopters has become the contemporary leitmotiv, a soundmark of social gatherings, demonstrations, and public assemblies. Political protest and occupations in cities like Cairo, Athens, Madrid, London, Istanbul, or NewYork could not be more diverse and different. At the same time, the sounds of police helicopters in all these places are suspiciously similar.
