Memories, dreams and desires during the COVID 19- Lockdown.

This special soundmix is based on an on-going project with Felix, a very intelligent young man, with special needs. He is not able to speak, or to walk by his own, or to go wherever he wants to.

Our collaboration started a few years ago, when it turned out that Felix has a strong interest in music, especially in soundart and electroacoustic music.
And not only that: the melody of the world was obvious to him. Nobody had to explain him that there is sound everywhere.

We then organised a professional recording unit for Felix and he started to record his environment, his daily life. A few weeks later he told me that he found a new language, a new way to communicate, to express himself: via sounds, via fieldrecordings.
And we started to communicate in this language, exchanged messages and ideas via fieldrecordings.
