The two musicians/performers Geoff Leigh and Cristiana Vignatelli Bruni meet here for the first time to initiate an improvised music performance for flute, voice and electronics. A modern ritual in an imaginative cave, where the music reflects around the space through the austere and totemic circular devices. The public is invited to actively participate in the performance by interacting with the sound mirrors and discovering the subtle sonic reflections they create. Voices of a cavern where Eco and Pan are at play.

The performance lasts for approximately forty minutes; the installation will remain in place for the duration of the weekend; a looped recording will play continuously in the absence of the performers.

The work takes inspiration from the early 20th century "Listening Ears", passive acoustic devices built around coastal towns in Kent, south-east England, between 1915 and 1930, to function as acoustic radar to detect approaching war planes. A technology that soon became obsolete.
The six sound mirrors placed in a circle create a whispering aural flux where subtle sounds of decaying rocks evoke lost soundscapes, caves of an old civilization, while creating a spatiality specific to viewer/listener interaction. Archeological relics triggering reflections, and the creation of a participatory zone.

During this performance the audience is asked to join the performers in the installation but to also experience the music and art outside the installation. Due to the nature of this installation / performance only a limited number of people is allowed inside the performance space.

Sounds of Silence festival exposes the profound art of silent film and explores its interaction with contemporary music and art. The festival will celebrate its 5th edition on March 7-10, 2019. Musicians and artists participating in the 5th edition are: Ensemble Klang; Guus Janssen, Wolter Wierbos and Wim Janssen; The Edge Ensemble and Elisenda Pujals; Tomer Baruch and Alex Brajković; Cristiana Vignatelli and Geoff Leigh; Carolina Cortés Zambelli, Nathalia Valdés Vergara and Renán Zelada Cisneros.
