Having John's Cage performance 4’33” as a starting point, A-B is trying to visualize the relative silence of the long and solitary trips made by the photographer.
The crumble of the engines made by different means of transportation and the murmur of the terminals or waiting rooms becomes the soundtrack of the trip, and the white noise of one’s thoughts.
Graphical waveforms of white noise extracted from field recordings made during these trips are overlaid with photographs from the same trips depicting waveform-like looking landscapes, as well as other passengers looking at them out the window, or simply gazing, absorbed by their own thoughts - just like the photographer.
Book concept, design and photographs by Dragos Hanciu
Developed during the Sounds like a book workshop in Bucharest, 2018.
