 The Noon Bell

A quiet study of sound, smell and daydreaming, The Noon Bell explores the delights and fears of remembering and forgetting. 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 short story about the search for a recurrent dream.

 Quiet Cinema

A study in the poetics of audio dynamics, Quiet Cinema strives to cultivate the timbre of film sound. Arguing that cinema had made a mistake by misinterpreting  the soundtrack, the author asks: ‘what kind of a filmmaker would I be had the silent era completed its task before the arrival of sound?’. Exploring the lost secrets of audio-visual language by proposing quiet tools such as audio framing, audio opacity, and sound leitmotiv, this visionary essay revisits the films of Tati, Bresson, Tarkovsky, Hitchcock, Dreyer, Buñuel and others in search of quietness.

Hidden Layers

(work in progress)

Hidden Layers captures the submerged, the forgotten, and the intangible qualities of aesthetic phenomena in this collection of reflections on life, dreams, memory, cinema, music, and art. Refining his philosophy of concealment, Danny Hahn poetically unearths his phenomenology of impressions in this dedication to keeping something scarce alive.
