Radio session by writer, radio dj and educator Peggy Pierrot.
From Drexciya and other Detroit techno bands, to historians and science fiction writers, to Rivers Solomon, author of speculative and literary fiction such as The Deep, the Atlantic Ocean - known here as the Black Atlantic - has been the crucible for stories of loss and flight, abduction and rebirth. This radio program invites us to dive into this black ocean in search of these sounds and stories.
Peggy Pierrot’s favorite tools are the social sciences and open source software. She teaches Theory of Media and Communication and Speculative Narration at Ecole de Recherche Graphique (ERG) in Brussel, where she is also responsible for audio-visual technologies. Constant themes throughout her long parcours is the Black Atlantic (colonial histories, speculations and hybridization) as well as the Radio. Peggy is also working towards developing alternative educational models with her inspiring workshops, interventions, mentorships and radio programs.
