An  acoustic walk

 

“We can hear even before we’re born. The idea of “hearing the land” convinced the jury. Everything has its sound, every tree, every drop of water, even the motorway. A wonderful confrontation with a region in Salzburg that is documented, recorded and continued, and also with the consequence of depicting the contrasts of seeing and hearing”.

from the jury statement for the competition “Wahre Landschaft”, Land Salzburg, 2018
