Per un archivio culturale sonoro della migrazione: (inside) The British Library Sound Archive

Pierpaolo Martino

Abstract


I sound archives sono istituzioni che mettono in scena complesse relazioni personali, politiche culturali, nonché tecnologiche; ponendosi al tempo stesso come sito di una costante negoziazione tra pulsioni universali e forze nazionali. Il presente contributo analizza il British Library Sound Archive in termini di spazio di conservazione e "attivazione", ossia fruizione,  di tracce sonore diversissime, in cui è possibile ri-trovare le voci di scrittori e musicisti figli di complessi processi di migrazione – dal  poeta caraibico Kamau Brathwaite, al poeta  dub anglo-giamaicano Linton Kwesi Johnson, sino allo stesso Bob Marley – che con le loro storie e i loro suoni migranti e sempre eccedenti non fanno che problematizzare l' idea stessa di un archivio stabile, di una world's knowledge con cui spesso si cerca di identificare la complessa realtà rappresentata dall' istituzione British Library.
