The Noon Bell

Written in twelve aphoristic chapters and told during the twelve resonant chimes of a village church bell, an alpine region of Switzerland sets the scene in this poetic and philosophical novella about the contemplative ear, intricately and sensitively revealed through the unique sounds of the valley.

 Quiet Cinema

Quietness in film is discussed in this poetic essay, introducing ideas such as audio opacity and audio framing. Audio-viewed with fresh senses, the films of Ozu, Dreyer, Tati, Asquith, Hitchcock, Tarkovsky and many more are collected together in an attempt to reawaken the attitude towards sound and its representation in the later part of the silent era.
