In the arms of silence by Cantabile 2

With headphones, we live in the universe of sound and feel the silence

The silence is always here. It’s here – below all the sounds. You feel it especially in nature, in the company and in special moments, where the calm subsides and time stands still. Often, however, it can be difficult to feel. Because there is so much noise in the world, and so much to do. But if you listen carefully, you can hear the silence. It’s here – right now. Can you hear it? Often we do not count the silence for anything. But if you sink into it, the world comes alive in a new way. An attentive way. And every little sound gets value. It becomes clearer what is important. In the show, we all wear headphones. You are locked into a rich universe of sounds. What you hear plays along with the performers movements on stage. It’s as if they’re whispering directly into your ear. This creates the impression of the images you create inside. Together we make simple physical movements while experiencing the sounds of the world resting in the arms of silence. The sound design uses binaural – or 3D-sound – which provides a special bodily and spatial experience of sound.
