This piece is a stroll through the streets of Vilnius. The anchor points of this route are three houses of prayer, where we can hear the sound of bells.
The source of this piece is the soundscape of the walk. At the heart of it, there is one sound, but its perception is constantly changing. The source of the video is a collection of similarly sounding areas of Paris, a visual reflection of sounds that are 2000km away.
“The sound experience which I prefer to all others is the experience of silence. And this silence, almost anywhere in the world today, is traffic. If you listen to Beethoven, it’s always the same, but if you listen to traffic, it’s always different.”
