Moving fragments of Saint Bruno

How many stories does a neighbourhood tell? How many stories that come spontaneously to our ears in the urban flux? This sound piece is an invitation to listen to some fragments of the Saint Bruno neighbourhood and street market, in Grenoble, France. It is not made only of voices but it's made of people that come and go. These are lost events, full of context, trapped in a record. Sound fluxes that might be or not comprehensible, that sometimes depends on our understanding. The time and the fluxes establish these small everyday frontiers between the listener and the sound, us and the others.


Luciana Santos Roça is questioning our own ability as listener to open our ears and to listen. How do we listen to and welcome these sounds? How hospitable are our ears?
