Voiced and led by Tim Simonds, Aaron Lehman, and Emma McCormick-Goodhart.

The second in an ongoing series, Suck(l)ing Sounds #2 probes, performs, and thinks with sucking and suckling sounds, watery bodies, hydrofeminisms, interphysiologies of lactation cross-species, flower teats, honey as milk, and milk honey, planetary wet nurse practices, aurality and amniotic musickings in and out of the womb, and links between infant feeding and infant babble.

Joined by Jessika Kenney, Salome Schmuki, LinYee Yuan, Mary Wang and Keza Nyampeta Wang, and Andros Zins-Browne

Jessika Kenney is known for unwinding and nourishing a harbor of voices. As a filter for sphygmoresonances, be they in forms of language or indecipherable metonymics, this functioning as process frequently manifests as: the intersection of melodic science (radifs, cengkok, unstable svaras, pulses) with the aural and textual transmissions of related concepts.

Salome Schmuki examines the structure and organization of language, the way in which written language is coded, and relationships and/or disruptions in various aspects of perception and the (sub-)processes involved in it. She lives in Brussels (BE) and St. Gallen (CH), studied at the University of Art and Design Zurich and the Gerrit Rietveld Akademie Amsterdam and had a two year stipend and residency at the Jan van Eyck Akademie, Postacademic Institute for Research and Production in Fine Art, Design and Theory, Maastricht.

Mary Wang is a writer and editor based in New York. Keza Nyampeta Wang was born in that same city this year, an event he still considers his biggest achievement to date.

LinYee Yuan is a design journalist as well as the editor and founder of MOLD magazine, which examines issues relating to food from a futuristic design perspective.

Andros Zins-Browne is an artist working at the intersection of performance and dance. His work extends choreographic notions to interact with dancers, non-dancers, singers, objects, and texts. Central to these pursuits is the exploration of the body as both material and immaterial, a site of exchange between embodied images and somatic experience. His works include Already Unmade—an unmaking of his own choreographic archive—at the ICA, London; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai; and Fondation Galeries Lafayette, Paris.
