Headphones Concert

By working their music set from acoustic and electronic sounds, combined with nonchalant dreamy voices, the duo developed step by step their headphones concert, enriching their show of a high stereophonic and 3D sound (Binaural) quality, and making their compositions  sincerely deep  and delicate.

 

Bringing carpet and cushions to fashion the place in a reel nest, Sliding Words proposes to his audience, an intimate and meditative musical moment, listening the moving sounds from headphones plugged on old 20' to 60' telephones, arranged  all around the place.

This original installation permit them to create a very personal relationship with their audience, th music taking a bigger intensity in each ear, and offering the possibility to the artists to play in more more atypic venues.
