Outdoor listening session.
The audience is seated, gathered in front of two speakers and facing a landscape. The listening is stereo, distracted or focused, environmental and narrative and based on the contemplation of the place. The voices, the sound and musical elements, the silences, maintain a relationship of rupture, dialogue and coincidence with the sounds naturally or accidentally produced by the place and the distance.
Several spoken, musical and landscape sound pieces following each other up give rise to a long open and fragmented story.

The sound performance can also take place in front of un urban landscape,
from a privileged point of view.
