Her Story of Rocks


now, i’m finally realizing that there are not many black geo-scientists, let alone women…!”

…like, this isn’t for girls…!”

…my love for geology stared here in Binga!”

The vocals of “her story of rocks” are based on a long interview with Chiza Mwinde in Binga Zimbabwe. Chiza was born in Binga, a place “at the back of beyond” as some have it. She is now studying geo-sciences in the US.

Hear Chiza’s story !

We worked together at the local women’s organisation Zubo Trust, Chiza as an Intern, me as multimedia volunteer. I was intrigued by her art of storytelling… about rocks, her research and, about her life… and I enticed her to share her story with us…

Listen to a playlist of clips from the interview with Chiza


The remix “Her story of Rocks” was created in response to the project and open call-out , “Breaking the Sound Barrier 8”

Excerpts from the interview were treated to various sets of chance cuts and effects, following the inspiration from the music, her story of rocks, the crushing of language and of tectonic plates in the history of the earth.
