ENABLE ORIGINAL 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 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 a totally legitimate musicial experience is 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.
