Watching with your ears: Soundscape Cinema

At this moment and in cooperation with other artists, Michiel is working on a project set up by him called ‘Watching with your ears: Soundscape Cinema'. For this project, the soundscape is made first and after that the film images. 'The Story' is mainly told in sound.
In doing so, he is in search for another sort of watching experience, in which sound dominates the image.
