Video report about the project

Lullaby Experience is a participative project, open to all —children and adults alike—worldwide. Collected recordings (lullabies) provide the sonic material used for the musical creation of this installation / piece. Transformed and assembled, they form a singing map of the world, moving through sonic space like flocks of birds, creating the sound portrait of each city where the work is shown.
