The Aural Border: Listening Across the California-Mexico Line with Josh Kun

Popular Music Project Director, MacArthur Fellow author and USC Professor Josh Kun leads a musical and sonic tour of the California-Mexico borderlands. From the tourist booms of the early 1900s to the rock and roll booms of the 1960s, from Herb Alpert and Woody Guthrie to contemporary electronic music and narco-ballads, and from border sound art to border radio, Kun complements the exhibition You Are Going On A Trip with a listening expedition that follows inter-California frequencies from Tijuana to Los Angeles and back again.
