Journey to the

Proof-of-concept sonic storyboard designed to re-imagine Louis-Ferdinand Céline’s 1932 novel, Journey to the
End of the Night
, as continuous stream of musical moments. This storyboard demonstrates the ways in which
narrative, character and place 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 to an aesthetic advantage.
The result is an atmospheric audio journey that closely follows the novel’s narrative structure as it moves seam-
lessly between the main character’s inner and outer world.



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