Secret Sound Stories

“A wonderful sound experience. The narrative expands your sense of time, breaking down the scenes of a photo and showing you a whole different world. You have the opportunity to admire the details and project yourself into another world. While everyone else is doing their blah blah, you are not even aware of being at a vernissage.”

Secret Sound Stories is a one-to-one intimate and personal guided path in which social and existential themes are presented as audio tales written by hidden actors, using wireless headphones. These stories are directly related to different exhibited art works such as photos, painting, historic buildings or pure darkness: through the presentation of a series of photographs or specific objects we give life to unique personalized tales that unveil to us details of realities which are often forgotten or forgotten in our society.

The listeners are guided through their secret stories, creating a personal visual sound map; an intimate, parallel secret world of which other visitors are unaware.

Every performance is unique with new stories written by performers based on the festival or exhibition’s theme.
