Birmanie Thabarwa AumoneThe idea of these trips is to listen to  reality to better feel the moment and share with the people we meet. Sometimes without a common language, we have the sounds perceived by our ears to share with each other.

We traveled on Burma roads in 2015,  recorded over the actual meetings. We cut, assembled, superimposed sound capsules to try to restore your sensitive sound environment of the moment. Goldbeaters, jungle or song of Burmese children, come with us to a sound journey.
