A dissonance: an acoustic colour in the voice. Solitude, alienation, innocence and irony intercept the state of the fragile, frame by frame. Subtle noises and images interlace in a non-linear narrative blurring the edges between fiction and reality. The work quotes parallel worlds, transposing elements of multimedia descent: figures, words and phrases extracted from Saint-Exupéry’s most famous novella, weather signals and tide reports of Gran Canaria, notes. A sort of transporting sense arises, a journey through an ocean escape of abstract paintings that embeds the collage imagery. The cross-fading creates the illusion of a film in slow motion, intensified by the sound as a mind-rhythm or a take-off to another world.
