Sound as North Carolina Politics

Women's March Protest Image

The Moral March in February, 2014 in front of the State Capitol in Raleigh attracted more than 80,000 people and reflected the political issues that the residents of the state are most concerned about. This exhibit presents the issues with sounds collected from various sources and the fictional viewpoint of a college student at the rally. Some of the sounds were recordings from speeches, songs and interviews at the rally. Some were recorded from every day scenarios such as pencil tapping and water dripping. We encourage you to engage with the sounds to experience the Moral March and to think about the political issues of North Carolina.
