A History and Methodology of Sublime Frequencies

Sublime Frequencies is a record label based in Seattle, Washington. It is “a collective of explorers dedicated to acquiring and exposing obscure sights and sounds from modern and traditional urban and rural frontiers via film and video, field recordings, radio and short wave transmissions, international folk and pop music, sound anomalies, and other forms of human and natural expression not documented sufficiently through all channels of academic research, the modern recording industry, media, or corporate foundations.” It focuses mostly on sounds from Southeast Asia, North Africa and West Africa and the Middle East.

Hisham Mayet, the co-founder and co-owner of Sublime Frequencies, will present a discussion about the founding of Sublime Frequencies and its modus operandi. He will discuss the revolutionary aspects of the label and what has changed within the framework of how technology has transformed the idea of cultural anthropology as it relates to popular culture, and the gathering and disseminating of a cultural heritage in the realm of musicology.
