Comprising multimedia theatre and a participatory art experience, Listening Time turns a 1,300-seat auditorium into a space of active listening. A metaphor of “all actions sound” was unfolded at the beginning through a series of stage sequences, in sounds and moving lights were generated by a system of sensors activated by choreographed movements. The process then extended to the auditorium, which was left vacant in the subsequent days, except for the installation of 15 sets of music boxes. Participants could write stories on specially designed slips, and compose matching tunes by punching holes with musical scales. These punch cards were then played at the music boxes which, similar to the stage sequences, generated synchronized sounds and a stream of flowing lights.
