“The Stranger Gets a Gift” project devises performances, to be experienced one person at a time, that alter the ways we perceive time, space and the presence of others. REMINISCENCIA is a sound environment performance that provides a journey intended to awaken auditory memory. What does sound memory embody? What can be transferred, shared or preserved by sound?

Reminiscencia is a study of sound environments. Guided through a progressive myriad of interactive binaural dimensions, the User is transported between interchangeable perspectives and responses that ultimately culminate in a singular, very personal auditory memory.

„Put the headphones on. Inform the Operators that the volume level that is comfortable for you. Listen.”
