synopsisComprehending the world through sound: British producer Matthew Herbert presents this ambition to the audience. His journeys into sound are motivated by contemporary social and political issues. What do we hear when listening to the average pig that is part of the slaughter and food industry? How will Brexit change the sound of the world? If we experience the act and sound of cutting down a tree, will we learn more about listening to the non-human parts of the world? A portrait of a conceptualist, political artist, inexhaustible pilgrim to the center of the world of sound.
