Interferencias is a collaborative piece, made alongside with a group of migrant houseworkers based in London. It is part of a larger sound archive project regarding immigration for housework purposes in the UK. It was recorded between January and February 2020 in London and includes those recordings that refer to the barrier of the language faced by the workers as non-English speakers, bringing up issues around communication, personal storytelling and the limits of translation. On purpose, the translation has been kept as similar as possible to the Spanish version and only selected parts of the recordings have been translated, to question the hierarchies of power in the acts of translating and understanding.
