Clamor of the Accordant: MTNM Collective Project with Paris- Sorbonne:

MA/MFA students in the Transdisciplinary New Media (MTNM) program are
participating in a collaborative project for the symposium
“Between Presence and Distance” by Paris-Sorbonne University.
The MTNM students, with the supervision, guidance, and participation of their lecturer Filipa Cruz therefore created the project Clamor of the Accordant

In this piece, we examine language as a conduit for our thoughts, our
presence, and our way of being.  There is a beauty in the discomfort
that comes from learning a new language,  perhaps because it represents
an adjustment to a new rhythm and cadence of being.  We learn languages
to connect, but in the absence of a shared language, an understanding
still exists.  Tone and intonation become the pleasant sound by which we
gauge intention.  In the absence of shared words, we default to the
implicit language of respect.
