The sound is a collection of eight stories from elderly people, recounting their memories of evenings in their twenties. One story from each person is selected and edited, then professionally recorded by experienced storytellers. Each story is matched with a pertinent song or piece of music, lending an emotional and historical context to the reading.
Each story is a complete vignette it itself, but when combined the collection forms a 45-minute audio that has a deliberately crafted contour, creating a journey in sound and music. the installation takes listeners on a personal, historical and emotional journey through evenings past.
