Black Obsidian Sound System: In Focus with TYGAPAW is the first of two episodes of podcasts produced by Sable Radio with FACT and Liverpool Biennial to accompany the exhibition ‘The Only Good System is a Sound System’ by artist collective Black Obsidian Sound System. The exhibition can be seen at FACT from 19 May until 28 August 2021.

This episode is a conversation between DJ, Curator and Producer TYGAPAW and B.O.S.S. member, writer and filmmaker Deborah Findlater. Stay tuned for the second episode of this podcast, coming soon. You can keep up with B.O.S.S.’ work here and TYGAPAW's here.

To catch Black Obsidian Sound System's latest work, The Only Good System Is a Sound System, head to FACT for Liverpool Biennial 2021 until 29 August 2021. B.O.S.S presents an immersive environment, combining film, light, a sound score and sculpture. Weaving together archival images, the installation reflects the ways in which marginalised groups have developed methods of coming together against a background of repression and discrimination in the UK – positioning sound culture as spaces of collective strength and encounter where kinship is found and reciprocated.
