Sound

 

Enable Original Sound is a series of video portraits that shows musicians performing, in real time, in silence and in their own heads, a piece of music that is of particular importance to them.

 

The aim is to visually demonstrate the concept of audiation — the internal personal perception of sound, even when sound is not physically present — and show how totally legitimate musical experiences are possible without any music present. It may also confer a musical experience on the viewer.

Please use the scroll bar along the bottom of the page to see the series, and please note that with slower web connections portraits may take longer to load.
