This proof-of-concept sonic storyboard is designed to reimagine a work of fiction as a continuous stream of
musical moments. It reveals how narrative can emerge from the arrangement and overlaying of pre-existing
recordings, and how the absence of character dialogue and/or spoken narration can be turned into an aesthetic
advantage. The result is a highly crafted and atmospheric audio journey that closely follows the novel’s narrative
structure and moves seamlessly between the acoustic boundaries of the main character’s subjective experience.



Written by Louis-Ferdinand Céline. First published in Paris by Éditions Gallimard. 1932.           Full-length: 53:13min
