This appeal calls for sound to be considered as a geophilosophical provocation to, and a method for,
political thought. It arises from experiments in ways of knowing and inhabiting the world, gesturing
toward disciplines concerned with sound, the politics of language, and the physical and philosophical
environment. Anchoring sound as an inherently political medium, it outlines five propositions on
inequality, imperceptibility, translation, commons, and the future; it argues that these are critical
arenas into which the particularities of sound afford inquiry. Developing this specific reading of
sound positions the sonic as a means for opening spaces that challenge hegemonic and violent forms
of subjectivation, which are productive of contemporary states of ecological and economic crisis.
