Tales is a sound-based interactive installation, which questions rigid and static notions of identity through the use of voice and first-person storytelling. Users will share a one-minute voice portrait that will be integrated in real-time to a sonic environment, in which fragments of each user’s personal story will be randomly interchanged, creating a multi-voiced and multi-tuned new narrative.
